HOLDERS Kearsley visit Daisy Hill on Sunday as their defence of the Hamer Cup continues.

The Springfield Road side saw off Farnworth in 2018 to end a nine-year wait for an 11th title and will stay on course for a dozen triumphs if they can see off the Associations bottom-placed side.

Westhoughton, winners in 2017, host Heaton while that year’s other finalists, Farnworth Social Circle, are at home to Tonge.

Last year’s runners-up Farnworth hosts Little Lever in an all-Premiership clash at Lavender Road, while Association leaders Atherton visit fellow second-tier side Eagley.

It is bottom versus top from the Premiership when leaders Horwich RMI visit rock-bottom Bradshaw while Association strugglers Blackrod and Golborne meet at Vicarage Road.

The final second-round tie sees Little Hulton at home against last year’s top-flight champions, Walkden.
