Big guns avoid each other in Norfolk Senior Cup semi-finals

Wroxham and Dereham Town were kept apart in last night's draw for the semi-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup.

The two highest-ranked clubs left in the competition were both handed home draws against Thurlow Nunn League opposition - although the Yachtsmen still have the small matter of Tuesday's re-arranged quarter-final with minnows Scole United to contend with.

Should they beat the Almary Green Anglian Combination Division One side at Trafford Park they will then be at home again to high-flying Norwich United in a tie that is scheduled for Saturday, February 28.

Meanwhile Wroxham's fellow Ryman League Division One promotion-chasers Dereham Town will play host to Diss Town, who have shrugged off their league struggles to stand just one game away from a trip to Carrow Road in May.

In the semi-finals of the Junior Cup Catfield will continue their bid for a hat-trick of wins with a home match against Castle Acre Swifts while Sprowston Athletic will host Redgate Rangers in the other semi-final.
