The draw for the early rounds of the Herts Senior Challenge Cup have thrown up the usual intriguing derbies.

National League South St Albans City will face near neighbours and Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division side London Colney at home, while there is a similar gulf as Hoddesdon Town host Hemel Hempstead Town.

There are three games between teams at step three of the non-league pyramid and step four.

Southern League Division Once Central Ware host Premier Division Royston Town while divisional rivals of both, Welwyn Garden City and Hitchin Town, face off with that game at Top Field.

The other match has Berkhamsted at home to Kings Langley.

There is a two division gap for Potters Bar Town's trip to Baldock Town and Bishop's Stortford against Leverstock Green.

Four teams have a bye to the second round - Boreham Wood, current holders Cheshunt, Stevenage and Watford U21.

Dates for each round have yet to be fixed.
