Road To Bishops Stortford: EOFL Senior League Cup 1st Round Draw

The road to Bishops Stortford for the final of the Essex Olympian League Senior League Cup in May 2020 has begun with the draw for the First Round being done last night ahead of being played in September.

All 14 Premier Division sides won’t be taking part until October when they enter at Round Two whilst ACD United have also received a bye into the same round as the Premier Division sides. It means at the current point in time, Bishops Stortford Swifts won’t be trying to defend the cup until as previously stated, October.

Ties in the competition include the all-Division 1 affair between Runwell Sports and Manford Way whilst there is a tasty all-Division 2 tie between Epping Town and Corinthians to watch if your around the area that day.

Division 3 side Wakebury start their first ever campaign with a trip to Division 1 side Lakeside whilst fellow-Division 3 side Hullbridge Sports A also start their debut campaign with a trip to Division 4 side Leytonstone United.

Cupids Country Club will be hosting two ties as both Wakering Sports from Division 2 host Collier Row of Division 3 whilst Shoebury Town from Division 1 host Division 5 side Old Barkabbyeans in what could prove to be a major upset.

Last season’s semi-finalists Chingford Athletic from Division 1 play hosts to Beacon Hill Rovers of Division 2 in the First Round.

All of the dates for the matches will be confirmed in due course.
