Gloucestershire sides find out latest ties in Hellenic League cup draws

Our Gloucestershire based Hellenic League sides have learned their opponents in the next rounds of the Bluefin Sports Challenge and Supplementary cups. 

Over the last couple of weeks the cups have crept back into the fixtures in amongst the FA Cup and FA Vase and even though there are a couple of games to be played in each cup competition, our sides now know what awaits them in the next round.

Starting in the 4th Round of the Challenge Cup, Fairford Town have been drawn at home to a Hereford Lads Club who have impressed in the early goings in the Division One West.

Lydney Town can set up a mouth watering home tie with Hellenic Premier leaders Westfields if they can beat Wellington on Tuesday evening.

There are also two all Gloucestershire ties in the Challenge Cup as Moreton Rangers have been drawn at home against Hellenic Premier side Brimscombe & Thrupp, whilst the winner of the due to be replayed tie Shortwood United vs Bishops Cleeve – will play host to Tuffley Rovers, who beat another local side in Cheltenham Saracens at the weekend.
