The draw for the first two rounds of the League's Premier Challenge Cup was made at Sunday's AGM and Ashford have been drawn at home to Division One side Epsom Athletic in the 2nd Round, after receiving a bye in the 1st Round.

Of the seven 1st Round ties, there is only one all Premier clash and that will see Windsor entertain last season's runners-up Colliers Wood United.

Notable ties in the 2nd Round include Hanworth Villa at home to Chertsey Town, whilst new boys AFC Hayes will be at home to Raynes Park Vale.  Other local clubs had mixed fortunes, with Spelthorne Sports facing a tough tie away to Badshot Lea and Bedfont Sports away to Farnham Town or Ash United if they can overcome the challenge of Abbey Rangers in the 1st Round.  By co-incidence, the two new Reserve sides in Division One, Dorking Wanderers Res and South Park Res were drawn together in the 2nd Round whilst holders Camberley will entertain Eversley & California and Cove also have a home tie against Cobham.

The full draw can be viewed on the CCL unofficial forum.

Details of entries, exemptions, round dates and draws for the early rounds for the Emirates FA Cup, FA Trophy, FA Vase and FA Youth Cup are due to be published on at 11.00am on Friday 3 July.

Ashford will doubtless enter the FA Cup at the Extra-Preliminary Round stage (to be played Saturday 15 August) but we may receive an exemption in the Vase to the 1st Round Proper, by virtue of our 3rd place finish in the League last season.

The first cup draw for the new season, involving Ashford, has been received and it is Middlesex FA quick on the draw with news of the Senior Cup.

The 1st Round Draw will see Ashford making the short trip to meet Hanworth Villa, with the winners at home in the 2nd Round to Harefield United or AFC Hayes.

An interesting newcomer to the competition is Barnet FC, who will travel to Staines Town in the 2nd Round.  One or two of the bigger clubs will find themselves going out quickly with Harrow Borough drawn at home to Wealdstone and Hayes & Yeading at home to Hampton & Richmond Borough.

The other CCL clubs involved all start in the 1st Round, with Spelthorne Sports at home to Bedfont Sports and AFC Hayes away to Harefield United.
