East Harling will take on the role of massive underdogs this Sunday in the quarter-finals of the Bob Carter Challenge Cup. The Alliance Division Three side host EAPL leaders Swardeston, who have won the competition five times. It is the first time that Harling have reached this stage of the competition and club spokesman Jon Briggs said they were determined to enjoy the day. He added: "We are looking forward to it, although there is a certain amount of trepidation. Our chances are probably somewhere between slim and non-existent, but we will make sure we do everything properly on the day." The odds will be marginally better on Bradenham causing an upset when they take on EAPL side Norwich. Bradenham pulled off the biggest shock of the last round, beating Alliance Premier Division high-fliers Norwich & Coltishall Wanderers. Defending champions Vauxhall Mallards are at home to EAPL strugglers Fakenham and Diss, mid-table in Alliance Division One, welcome Alliance Premier Division side Cromer.

Carter Cup quarter-final ties (playing Sunday): Vauxhall Mallards v Fakenham, East Harling v Swardeston, Bradenham v Norwich, Diss v Cromer.

Lady Mary Trophy quarter-final ties (playing Sunday): Brooke v Acle, Old Buckenham v Great Witchingham, Bradfield v Stow, Great Melton v Saham Toney.
