Kingstonian FC have been drawn against Corinthian Casuals in the First Round of the Specsavers Surrey Senior Cup.
The Ks will take on their fellow Isthmian League Premier Division side who they faced in the quarter finals of the same competition last season, on route to Kingstonian reaching the final only to lose on penalties to Dorking Wanderers, who were promoted to the National League in the same season.
The game will take place at Imperial Fields on 16th November with a 7:45 kick-off.
Kingstonian are the fourth most successful team in the history of the Surrey Senior Cup, having won the title 11 times and being runners up on seven occasions, but their last triumph was back in 2006.
Their opponents in the Casuals have only won the competition twice, but won both of their finals and have won it more recently when they became champions of Surrey back in 2011.
The Casuals have had an even worse start to their Isthmian League Premier Division season that Kingstonian, they sit bottom of the league with just one win to their name and having lost their last five league matches.
Corinthian Casuals were also Kingstonian's landlords until this season, when Kingstonian moved to Imperial Fields, and there was animosity between the clubs during their ground sharing relationship, so there could be more riding on the game than it merely being a Surrey Senior Cup first round tie.
