Local footballers can look ahead to a feast of action as they prepare to return to the pitch. 

Most of our Fenland teams, excluding Wisbech St Mary Reserves in the Senior Cup, will take part in the Cambridgeshire County League’s Intermediate and Junior Cups which kick off on April 10. 

In the Intermediate Cup, there are six groups meaning only two runners-up will join the group winners in the last eight. 

Doddington United, Benwick Athletic, Guyhirn, March Academy and Wimblington will face off in Group A for a place in the quarter-finals, due to start in the third week of May. 

The Junior Cup has 10 groups of six with teams playing for a spot in the last 16. 

Those vying for a last 16 spot include Fen Tigers Engineers, AFC Christchurch and March Academy Reserves. 

The semi-finals of the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Cups are due to take place in the final week of May with finals on June 4, 9 and 11 at Newmarket Town FC.
