Travis Dodsworth scored an extra time winner to book Wroxham's place in the FA Vase fourth round with a 1-0 win over Wellingborough.

Chances were few and far between in the first half and former Norwich City striker Grant Holt passed up a golden chance to break the deadlock in the second period when he blazed a penalty over the bar.

It remained goalless after 90 minutes but the breakthrough finally came thanks to Dodsworth to secure £1,125 in prize money for the Yachtsmen.

Kirkley & Pakefield also secured their place in the last 32 of the competition as they claimed an impressive 2-0 win at Newport Pagnell.

Cameron Russell got both the goals in the second half to join Wroxham in the fourth round draw, which will take place on Monday afternoon.
