Wisbech Town's reward for a fine victory at Ashington on Saturday is a seventh consecutive away tie in the FA Vase.

The Fenmen will be on the road once more in the fifth round – the furthest stage they have reached in 17 years – when they travel to runaway Thurlow Nunn Premier Division leaders Hadleigh United on February 15.

Striker Tom James' brace in Northumberland at the weekend sealed Wisbech's passage as they kept their dreams of reaching a showcase Wembley final alive.

Hadleigh meanwhile received a walkover victory into today's last 16-draw. United's potential fourth-round opponents Moneyfields and AFC Bitton were involved in a fracas during their third-round clash.

The game was abandoned with the score at 1-1 after fighting broke out and the FA decided to remove both clubs from this year's competition.
