The draw has been made for the last 16 of the Kilkenny & District League McCalmont Cup.

Champions Evergreen A will continue the defence of their title with an away trip to Castlecomer to take on Deen Celtic A.

Highview Athletic B v Spa United

Freebooters B v River Rangers

Freshford Town v East End United

Brookville v Clover United A

Freebooters A v Evergreen C

Deen Celtic A v Evergreen A

Callan United v Highview Athletic A
