The first round proper of the FA Vase threw up a Norfolk derby as Great Yarmouth Town were paired with rivals Wroxham.

The Thurlow Nunn Premier Division will battle for a place in the second round at The Wellesley on Saturday, October 13.

After a difficult recent spell Yarmouth returned to form at the weekend with an impressive 3-1 win over Thetford, courtesy of a Kieran Hagan brace and a Sean Perfect strike.

Wroxham advanced thanks to a 3-0 win over Mulbarton Wanderers given to them through goals for Cruize Nyadazayo, Mac Gee and Jordan Bond.

Kirkley’s reward for their 2-0 win over Gorleston is a trip to Enfield Borough in the second round whilst Swaffham Town will head to Haverhill Borough if they can come through their replay with Framlingham Town after a 0-0 draw on Saturday.

The winners of their first round proper ties will benefit from £825 in prize money whilst the losers get £275.
