Swaffham are without a win in nine league games this season. Sports beat Eastern Counties Premier Division leaders Mildenhall 3-1 away from home in a qualifying round tie on Saturday (September 24) when Swaffham were winning 4-1 at UCL strugglers Huntingdon.

Yaxley have also drawn Eastern Counties Premier Division opposition, but their game will be a lot tougher, The Cuckoos will entertain sixth-placed Stanway Rovers at In2itive Park.

Peterborough Northern Star, 4-0 winners over Blackstones in Saturday’s qualifying round, have been rewarded with a home tie against South Midlands Premier Division side Sun Sports.
