Wisbech Town and March Town United land derbies in Ridgeons league cup draw
HOLDERS Wisbech Town and March Town United will play derbies in their opening Ridgeons League Challenge Cup matches.
Ridgeons Premier Division outfit Wisbech - who beat Wroxham 1-0 in May’s league cup final to win their first trophy in 16 years - begin their defence of the trophy at Downham Town in the first round.
March have been handed a tough preliminary round draw against higher-league opposition in the shape of Ely City. The Hares - who play in the Ridgeons First Division - were dumped out of the competition by The Robins in the first round last season but at least have home advantage this time round.
Brett Whaley’s side will face a daunting trip to Premier Division runners-up Dereham Town if they progress to the first round proper.
