Hornchurch were handed a trip to the Weston Homes Community Stadium to face League One side Colchester United when the draw for the third round of the Essex Senior Cup was made today.

Urchins were well beaten at the same stadium on a foggy night a few years back and lost to Colchester in the 2010 final, but won the competition two years ago after beating Grays.

Ryman North rivals Redbridge also received a plum tie away at Southend United, while Barkingside play host to Chelmsford City at Cricklefield Stadium.

Romford are set to visit league rivals Waltham Abbey, while Essex Senior League side Barking play host to Canvey Island at Mayesbrook Park.
