Teddington's manager, Neil Campling, was a satisfied man on hearing their home draw against Canterbury in the quarter-final of the Association Cup, writes Bill Colwill.

"Realistically, to qualify for a second year in Europe our aim must be to win the cup. I will be looking forward to playing them with a full side," he said yesterday. Canterbury's manager, Graeme MacDonald, was less enthusiastic: "Not impossible," he said, "but we would have preferred a home draw."

Guildford, the cup holders, entertain Reading, while the National League leaders, Southgate, travel to Old Loughtonians.
