Northern leaders to clash in Chatham Cup

The match on the weekend of July 3 and 4 is given extra weight by the clubs’ recent cup pedigree – East Coast Bays lifted the 87-year old trophy in 2008 while Three Kings reached last year’s final as a first division side.
In the Central Region, four-time winners Napier City Rovers have been drawn at home to three-time champions Miramar Rangers in an all-Central League clash.
That leaves Upper Hutt City and Wellington United – two clubs outside the region’s top league – with hopes of emulating Three Kings’ fairytale run all the way to North Harbour Stadium for the final.
Birkenhead United, the only other last 16 team outside the top division in its region, will make the short journey to Glenfield Rovers’ McFetridge Park for the first of two North Shore derbies.
Forrest Hill Milford will host Albany United in the other.
Three-time winners Waitakere City face Bay Olympic away from home, while Christchurch’s Western, the only former winners left in the Southern section of the draw, will welcome Ferrymead Bays.
Caversham have home advantage over Roslyn Wakari in the meeting of Dunedin’s two remaining clubs.
