The draw for the opening round of the Hinchingbrooke Cup has thrown up an intriguing all-Huntingdonshire clash.

Back-to-back Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division runners-up Godmanchester Rovers will host top-six United Counties League Premier Division outfit Eynesbury Rovers at the David Wilson Homes Ground.

Eynesbury roared to a 4-0 victory at Godmanchester when the sides met in a Hunts Senior Cup semi-final last season.

Huntingdon Town will have home advantage in the first round of the Hinchingbrooke Cup.

Bob Warby’s men, who received a relegation reprieve in the UCL Premier Division after finishing bottom last season, will host UCL Division One side Raunds at Jubilee Park.
