Leamington, Southam and Racing Club learn cup opponents

The league fixtures have yet to be released for the Evo-Stik Southern League and the Midland Combination Premier, but fans of Leamington, Southam and Racing Club Warwick have at least got something to whet their appetites after the FA released their cup draws.

Leamington enter the FA Cup at the first round qualifying stage on Saturday September 17 at home to either Boldmere St Michaels, Bartley Green, Coleshill Town or Brocton, while in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy, which takes place on Saturday October 22, they will travel to the winners of the Halesowen Town-Romulus tie.

Southam’s FA Cup trail gets under way much earlier, on Saturday August 20 at home to Tipton Town, with the carrot of another home fixture against Highgate United or Willenhall Town awaiting the winners.

Meanwhile, Racing Club, who have not entered the FA Cup, face a trip to Eccleshall in the first round qualifying of the FA Vase.

A home tie against Bromyard is the prize.
