King's Lynn Town could host Diss in a number of possible Norfolk derby match-ups in this season's FA Cup following the draws for the early rounds of the world famous cup competition.

Diss must first get past Holbeach and either Boston Town or Walsham-le-Willows to earn a first round qualifying trip to The Walks on Saturday, September 13.

Wroxham could meet Yarmouth in the preliminary round stage and Gorleston in first round qualifying with Norwich United handed a potential route to an away tie at either Thetford or Swaffham. Matty Henman's Dereham Town host St Ives with the winners travelling to St Neots in the first round qualifying.

The Magpies have earned two home ties in the FA Trophy, with Enfield awaiting the winners of their tie against Hanwell Town. Wroxham face a tougher task with an away tie at Harlow setting up a possible first round qualifying trip to Lewes.

In the FA Vase second round qualifying draw, Yarmouth will host Boston Town and Fakenham welcome Eynesbury Rovers or Mildenhall Town to Clipbush Park.
