The first round ties will be played on Sunday, May 3, with the second round due to be played two weeks later on May 17.

Full first round draw: Shenley Village v Steppingley; Datchworth v Weston; Botany bay v Old Owens; Reed v Bye; Long Marston v Langleybury; St Margaretsbury v Preston; Elstow v Bye; Bourne End v Bye.
