Dereham Town cruised into the quarter-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup after beating underdogs Acle United 6-1 at Aldiss Park on Tuesday night.

As the pressure mounted it was no surprise when the Magpies opened the scoring in the 27th minute when Dion Frary headed home Tom McLeish's corner.

Dereham continued to press after the break, with Danny Beaumont blazing over the top after a good interchange of passes.

They increased their advantage in the 64th minute when Joe Gatting put through Ryan Crisp who toe-poked home and added a third four minutes later when Gatting netted with a blistering 20 yard drive following more fine build-up play.
