Another home tie for Senior Cup giantkillers

19:47 28 November 2014

Thetford Town have been rewarded for their shock win over Norwich City Under-21s with another attractive home draw in the quarter-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup.

Town, who saw off the young Canaries 1-0 in the fourth round at Mundford Road, will host Dereham Town of the Ryman League Division One North next month.

Holders Gorleston were handed a tough trip to fellow Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division outfit Norwich United in last night’s draw.

The Greens, who edged past Downham Town in the previous round, will be taking on a side who are riding high at the top of the league, having picked up 14 points more than them in one less game.

The one surviving Almary Green Anglian Combination side left in the competition, Scole United, have been handed a daunting trip to last season’s runners-up Wroxham in the last eight.

Currently going well along with Dereham in the Ryman League, the Yachtsmen will be hot favourites to progress against a side who play in the Combination’s second tier.

The fourth tie sees King’s Lynn Town of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League travel to Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division strugglers Diss Town, who recently appointed Mark Reeve as their new manager.

The ties are due to be played on the afternoon of Saturday, January 10, although the dates are subject to confirmation.

DISS TOWN U9 entertained league leaders Drayton with goalkeeper Lewis Allen having an outstanding game. Diss got off to a good start with an early goal from Christoher Lymbery after some fine midfield play from Caleb Palmer and Max Bowen. Drayton were pressing hard to get the equaliser, but were met with some good defensive play from Liam Hamling and Dylan Wilby. Louis Land was battling well in midfield with Thomas Lymbery working hard up front to keep possession. William Frary’s fine running from midfield helped take the pressure off the Diss defence. After several great saves from Lewis Allen Diss broke away ending with a fine strike from Benjamin Cohodar coming off the post. Drayton finally got the equaliser in the last minute of the game. Final Score 1-1.
