The Errington Challenge Cup 1st Round pitted Redbridge against local rivals in a mouth-watering derby encounter. Woodford Town 2017 are paired up with Waltham Forest; West Essex entertain Basildon United, while Clapton’s large support may be up for a trip to the seaside as they have been drawn away to Southend Manor.
Holders Takeley start their defence of the honour they won last season in the 2nd Round, hosting Hullbridge Sports. Last season’s runners-up, Sawbridgeworth Town, also start off with a home tie in the 2nd Round with Burnham Ramblers coming to visit Crofters.
