Chichester City and Pagham have been handed home ties in the first round of the Sussex Senior Cup.

But Selsey and Midhurst will have to travel – as will the Rocks when they enter the competition in the seocnd round.

The draw, made at Sussex FA headquarters, paired Chichester with Oakwood, one of the sides City are due to face in division two of the Sussex League in the coming season.

Pagham will fancy their chances at home to Rustington, who also play in the second division.

Selsey travel to first-division Hailsham, with the winners of that tie hosting Bognor in round two.

The other local side involved in the first round are Midhurst, who must travel to Eastbourne United.

Dates for the two rounds have yet to be revealed.
