Groups picked for Peterborough League cup competitions
The long-awaited return to action for sides in the Peterborough League is imminent following the draws for a new cup competition.
After the curtailment of the league season following a vote by clubs, three separate competitions have been set up.
The Senior Cup will involve 28 teams from the Premier and Division One in four groups of seven.
Teams will play each other once with the top two from each group progressing into the knock-out stages.
The same format will be used for the 25 teams from Divisions Two and Three in the Junior Cup while the remaining sides will compete in the Minor Cup. The competitions are expected to begin on Saturday, April 10.
Premier Division Long Sutton Athletic have been placed in Group Three of the Senior Cup alongside Stilton United, who were leading the division when it was curtailed.
Leverington Sports have been placed in Group Four, alongside near neighbours Tydd.
Parson Drove have opted not to take part.
