Three AWFA sides will make an early return to the park for the Victorian qualifying round of the FFA Cup this weekend.

Wangaratta City, Twin City and Cobram Roar will all be in action across the region, while Myrtleford, who were also set to host a fixture, progress to the next stage due to a forfeit from Westside Strikers.

Reigning AWFA cup finalists Cobram will face Boronia Soccer Club at Shepparton’s John McEwen Reserve on Saturday at 3pm, while a double-header will take place at Wangaratta.

Twin City takes on Old Ivanhoe at 1pm, before the Devils line up against Swinburne FC at 3pm.

Myrtleford met Wangaratta in a fiery derby clash at the same stage of the knockout tournament last year, with the Savoys prevailing 3-2 thanks to a late goal from Nagus Henry.

Cobram and Twin City also got past the qualifying phase.

The draw for the first round is on Monday.
