The treasurers of the nine clubs left in the Chatham Cup would have been delighted by the quarter final draw of the prestigious knockout tournament today.

While the teams were placed in the hat for a national draw, the quarterfinal ties emerged with a clear regional aspect, ensuring minimal travel costs.

In an all-South Island clash, holders Cashmere Technical will travel to play Dunedin Technical while Wellington’s Island Bay United will host Napier City Rovers in a Central Region affair.

Northern Region Premier Division side Onehunga Sports will travel to Hamilton to meet Division One’s Melville United while Auckland’s Central United will host the winners of the  postponed fourth round match between Northern Premier clubs Bay Olympic and Hamilton Wanderers to be held on Saturday.

The quarterfinals will be played on the weekend of July 26/27.
