Another EAPL side, Horsford, will be wary of their trip to Brooke, although the biggest challenge of all awaits Alliance Division Two side Dereham, who must travel to EAPL champions Vauxhall Mallards.

First round ties: Topcroft v Acle, Sprowston v Cromer, Saham Toney v Fakenham, Stow v Happisburgh, Hardingham v Beccles, Brooke v Horsford, Downham v Great Witchingham, Sheringham v Swaffham, Lowestoft v Bradenham, Vauxhall Mallards v Dereham, Diss v Bye, Bye v Old Buckenham, Norwich v Swardeston, Bungay v Hales, Norwich & Coltishall Wanderers v Mattishall, Hethersett & Tas Valley v North Runcton.
