March Town could face local rivals Wisbech St Mary in the second qualifying round of the FA Vase after the draw was revealed today (July 8).

The Hares, who entered the second round automatically, will have to wait to find out the winner of the first round qualifying tie between the Saints and Thurlow Nunn Premier Division side, Gorleston, on Saturday September 10.

If St Mary upset the odds and make it through, they will face March at Beechings Close on Saturday September 24.

The cup meeting could serve as a re-match, as the two Fenland sides meet in the Thurlow Nunn Division One on Saturday August 2.
