Anglian Combination Premier Division pace-setters Harleston Town will need to scale new heights if they are to progress into the last 16 of the Norfolk Senior Cup.

Town have won all four of their league games in some style so far, scoring 24 times without so much as a single goal conceded, while they hammered Division One side Wymondham Town 7-1 last Saturday to reach the second round of the county competition.

They seem unbeatable at the moment but Great Yarmouth Town will have something to say about that after being handed a trip to Harleston in the third round.

The newly promoted Bloaters have made a solid start at a higher level and will be determined to avoid an early exit.

All the county's Thurlow Nunn League sides entered the draw on Friday night and two were paired together, with Fakenham hosting Gorleston.
