A precise time for Thursday's League Cup First Round draw has now been distributed to clubs. The draw will be published at 9.30a.m. and will give Yeovil Town their opening fixture of the 2012-13 season - a match that will be played on or around Tuesday 14th August, subject to television/policing requirements. There have been a few rumours that some clubs may bring forward their League Cup fixture to the preceding Saturday, although the Glovers have a pre-season friendly fixture against Exeter City on August 11th which would rule that out at present.
The usual format in the League Cup, which is under new sponsorship this year from Capital One, is for the First Round draw to be seeded and divided into Northern and Southern sections. If this is maintained, then Yeovil Town will sit in the Southern Section Unseeded pool. The usual cut-off for seeded clubs is around 11th in League One, based on the 2011-12 League Table. If/when seeding is announced, we'll put up a precise list of clubs here.
