Dereham Town set for Ryman League North match but Wroxham v King’s Lynn Town Reserves is rescheduled

Dereham Town have secured one victory already today as they prepare to reignite their Ryman League North play-off push.
The Magpies have beaten the weather and will host Haringey Borough this evening after Aldiss Park passed an 11.30am pitch inspection. It will be the first game for Dereham, unbeaten in 10 matches, since they saw off Spixworth on Wednesday to reach the Norfolk Senior Cup semi-finals. Matt Henmen’s side were meant to play at Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday but that league match was postponed.
Wroxham’s hopes of welcoming King’s Lynn Town Reserves for a second try at staging the last eight’s remaining tie have, however, fallen by the wayside. A 3.15pm pitch inspection decided the playing surface was not fit forcing the match to be delayed until a third attempt can take place on Tuesday.
The eventual winner will host Dereham and also join Norwich United and Gorleston in keeping their hopes alive of reaching a Carrow Road final.
Downham Town entertain Godmanchester Rovers in the Thurlow Nunn League Knockout Cup quarter-finals. Kirkley & Pakefield visit Felixstowe & Walton United in the league’s top-flight while Diss Town are at Stowmarket Town in the First Division.
