The National Village Cup Draw for 2018 was made on Friday 16th February.

There are more than 300 entries overall.

Only 8 Clubs are participating in Group 22, (Herts & Beds) meaning Reed get a Bye in the 1st Round on the 29th April.

Reed’s first match this season will be Away at old rivals Langleybury in the 2nd Round on Sunday 13th May. The victors will play at Home against either Sharnbrook & Bromham (it’s been mis-spelt on the NVC website) or Sawbridgeworth.

Near neighbours Foxton also get a Bye in Group 29. So do last year’s beaten finalists, Sessay from Yorkshire, who have entered their 2nd XI in Group 3. (Their 1st Team is ineligible for the NVC this season because they have been promoted to the top-tier of their Premier League.)
