After being held in Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City in the past two seasons, the Carabao Cup first-round draw for the 2019-20 campaign will take place a little closer to home - in a London supermarket.

Seventy clubs will discover their first-round opponents when ex-England midfielders John Barnes and Ray Parlour make the draw at the Colindale branch of Morrisons at 19:00 BST on Thursday.

It is approximately three miles from Wembley Stadium, where the final will be played on 1 March, 2020.

The English Football League's attempt to promote the competition internationally has led to draws taking place in China, Thailand and Vietnam in recent seasons.

Video released of journey on Northern Line extension

The first major extension to the Tube since the 1990s is on track to be finished on time, and Transport for London (TfL) has released a video of the first successful train journey along the line.

It is hoped the extension to the Northern Line, between Kennington and the new station in Battersea via another new station in Nine Elms, will be open by September 2021.

This will coincide with the wider regeneration of the area, which will bring 20,000 new homes by 2030.

Stuart Harvey, TfL’s director of major projects, said: “Running a train through the new section of railway tunnel is an exciting moment and demonstrates the hard work of hundreds of men and women who are working around the clock to build the first new Tube extension in two decades.

“The Northern Line Extension will support jobs, homes and growth in one of the most exciting new destinations in London, help keep pace with the capital’s rising population, and is creating jobs through the supply chain across the UK.”

The work will mean it would take just 15 minutes to get to the City or the West End, when currently it can take more than half an hour with a journey split between the bus and the Tube.

Ravi Govindia, leader of Wandsworth Council and co-chair of the Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership said: “We welcome the announcement of a clear timeline for the Northern Line Extension to Battersea and Nine Elms.

“The new Tube stations will provide a vital route into the heart of the Vauxhall Nine Elms and Battersea opportunity area, unlocking the growth potential of this river-front district and connecting it directly with the rest of central London.

“This extension is part of an extensive package of infrastructure work being delivered, including a new riverboat pier and road improvements to Nine Elms Lane and the wider neighbourhood, all funded by £1.5 billion investment going into the area.”
