Ross Potter will return to former club Diss Town with Wroxham after the two sides were paired together in the Thurlow Nunn League Challenge Cup first and second round draw.

Potter’s Wroxham side will make the trip to Brewers Green Lane on Tuesday, October 31, with a place in the third round of the competition up for grabs.

The former Diss manager left the Tangerines in May, after two seasons in the hotseat, to take charge of Premier Division side Wroxham.

Elsewhere, first round ties include Halstead Town travelling to Brantham Athletic, Framlingham Town hosting Needham Market Reserves, Hadleigh United entertaining Little Oakley, while Haverhill Borough face a trip to Saffron Walden Town.

All the first round ties are scheduled to be held on Tuesday, September 19, with teams all bidding for a spot in the second round the following month.

Other second round ties include a clash between Haverhill Rovers and Newmarket Town, Long Melford hosting Walsham-le-Willows, Ely City travelling to Wisbech St Mary, and Thetford Town welcoming Norwich CBS to Mundford Road.

Cornard United will host either Brantham or Halstead, with second round ties set to be held on October 31 or November 1.

AFC Sudbury Reserves, Debenham LC, Great Yarmouth Town, Leiston Reserves, March Town United, Stowmarket Town and Team Bury all opted not to enter the competition this season.
