It will mean a league meeting with the Tigers for the first time since the 2021/22 campaign when Holbeach lost their step five status.

The two teams both played out goalless draws that season before Pinchbeck were 4-1 winners the following year in the FA Vase clash.

Deeping and Bourne met two seasons ago in a Lincolnshire Senior Trophy tie with Rangers progressing following a penalty shoot-out win.

But next term will be their first league clash for a number of campaigns with the Wakes winning back their step five status in emphatic style this year having been demoted in 2009/10 due to FA ground grading regulations.
