At least one North Midlands club is guaranteed a place in the fourth round of this season’s RFU Intermediate Cup following the third round draw.
County rivals Kidderminster Carolians and Malvern have been paired with Kidderminster having home advantage for the tie on January 2.
Malvern crushed Shrewsbury 91-0 in last week’s second round while Kidderminster eased to a 32-0 home win over Spartans from Warwickshire.
Stourbridge Lions have been handed a home third round tie against Nottingham Casuals but Droitwich face a tricky away trip to Leicestershire to face Coalville.
Veseyans will also be away if they beat Ashbourne in their delayed second round tie. That match will now be played on January 2 with the winners travelling to Leicester Forest in the third round on February 6.
In the RFU Senior Vase, Evesham will entertain Cannock in the third round on January 2 but Ledbury must travel to Willenhall.
Edwardians will play Northampton Casuals in their postponed second round tie on January 2 with the incentive of another home tie against Loughborough in the third round on February 6 if they are successful.
There will be a North Midlands derby in the third round of the RFU Junior Vase with Upton upon Severn hosting Yardley & District on January 7.
Kings Norton, the other surviving North Midlands club, will play Rugeley at Ash Lane.
The three Midlands winners of the RFU Cups will progress to the national semi-finals.
