Cullingworth and Foulridge – winners of the past two Wynn Cups – have been drawn together in the first round of this year’s competition.
Holders Cullingworth will be at home on Sunday, May 12 against the shock victors from 2011. The top clash of the round, however, is a Keighley derby between 2012 league runners-up Crossflatts and 2011 and 2012 Wynn Cup runners-up Oakworth, who were fourth in the top flight last season.
Other derbies include Ingrow St John’s and Riddlesden, Airedale and Sutton, Cononley and Bradley and Glusburn and Ingrow.
