Canaries set to face Linnets in Norfolk Senior Cup

Norwich City were handed a trip to United Counties League high-flyers King's Lynn Town in last night's draw for the quarter-finals of the Norfolk Senior Cup.

A predominantly youthful City side won 5-1 at cup holders Dereham on Tuesday night to book their place in the last eight – and it is likely the Academy lads will get another chance to impress at The Walks, with the match set to take place in the week beginning January 7.

In an intriguing series of other ties Ridgeons League and Anglian Combination clubs have been paired together.

Mark Scott's Thetford Town, who have a 100 per cent record in Ridgeons League Division One, entertain David Batch's Premier Division table-toppers Wroxham.

Robert Taylor's Diss play host to Premier Division colleagues Gorleston, who are managed by Richard Daniels and Stuart Larter.
