ESSEX Senior Cup holders Billericay Town will welcome Concord Rangers in the pick of the Essex Senior Cup third round ties.

Town will face the face their National League South opponents, who won it for three consecutive years between 2014 and 2016 at the AGP Arena. Dean Brennan’s team won the competition last season against Chelmsford City, albeit they were managed by Harry Wheeler at the time.

Elsewhere, East Thurrock United welcome Eastern Counties League South side White Ensign to Rookery Hill, with four divisions between the two sides.

Basildon United have made a perfect start to the Isthmian North campaign and are likely to face a tough ask against Waltham Abbey – who sit second in the equivalent South Central Division with seven wins from eight encounters so far this term.

Bowers & Pitsea have also secured a home tie, with Brightlingsea Regent of the Isthmian Premier League heading south.

It is another tough cup draw for Canvey Island, with a trip to Braintree Town on the cards while Great Wakering Rovers’ resolve is likely to be tested by Isthmian North visitors Aveley.

Southend United, who use the competition to blood their youngsters, travel to Harlow Town.

And Essex Senior League pair Hullbridge Swifts and Southend Manor also have home draws. Sports welcome Witham Town and Manor will play host to Grays Athletic.

Ties will be played on or before November 10.

Other ties: AFC Hornchurch v Leyton Athletic, Brentwood Town v Maldon & Tiptree, Chelmsford City v Tilbury, Coggeshall Town v Barking, Colchester United v Romford, Dagenham & Redbridge v Heybridge Swifts, Redbridge v Saffron Walden or West Essex
