Cup draw made

Urchins visit Manor

LAST SEASON’S beaten finalists Hornchurch will begin this term’s Essex Senior Cup quest at Eton Manor.

The draw for the third round handed Urchins a trip to the Essex Senior League side, who play at Barking and are unbeaten in five league games this season, while Romford were given a home tie against another ESL side in Stansted.

Colchester, who beat Hornchurch 2-1 in the delayed final in August, must visit League One rivals Dagenham & Redbridge.

Aveley visit neighbours Tilbury, while former West Ham hero Julian Dicks takes his Grays Athletic side to previous club Wivenhoe. Ties are to be played on or before November 6.
