Norfolk will have two clubs at Step Four next season after the FA placed King’s Lynn Town in the Evo-Stick Division One South league and Wroxham in Ryman Division One North.

Eastern Counties League champions Wroxham had insisted that they would refuse to go up if they were placed in any other league due to their geographical location.

However, the FA granted them their wish of playing higher-level football after putting them in the Ryman League and Yachtsmen boss David Batch admitted the decision was a “victory for Norfolk.”

Gary Setchell’s side, promoted as United Counties Premier Division runners-up, will face more northerly journeys next season after it was decided they would play in the Evo-Stik (Northern League)’s Southern division.
