Message from Jennifer Clough:

Hello

I’m sorry for the delay – here is the full draw for the preliminary and first rounds of the cup competitions.

I have drawn the home teams for both the December and January rounds. The teams in bold letters, marked with * are the home teams. Under rule 40, the home teams will be drawn again for the second round after the first round is completed in January.

I hope the draws help with booking halls.

Kind regards

Jennifer
