Away draw for holders

RIDGEONS League Cup champions Wisbech Town will travel to Downham Town in the first round of next season’s competition.

March Town have been drawn at home to Ely City in the preliminary round with the winners facing Dereham Town in the first round.

The Ridgeons Premier Division will have 21 teams in 2011-12 as Whitton United declined promotion from Division One due to ground grading issues. The number is also reduced because Leiston have been promoted and Histon Reserves resigned from the league, while bottom club Debenham had the chance to stay up but elected to go down.

The Premier Division will be further reduced in size from season 2012-13 to 20 teams by relegating three teams at the end of 2011-12, but only allowing two up from Division One.

Stuart Cobb has signed for UCL Premier Division club St Ives.

Cobb left Wisbech Town midway through last season and played for Parson Drove for two months before returning to play in the Town’s reserve side.
