Norwich United, Kirkley & Pakefield and Gorleston have all been drawn at home in the next round of the FA Vase.

Gorleston's reward for a sensational 6-3 after-extra-time win on their own turf against London Tigers on Saturday is another fixture at Emerald Park against FC Romania. Kirkley & Pakefield, who won 4-0 at Brantham Athletic at the weekend, will welcome Edgware Town while Norwich United begin their quest to reach Wembley by hosting Hullbridge Sports.

Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division champions, and current leaders, United were exempt until today's draw after reaching the last 16 last season.

Wisbech Town, Diss Town, Great Yarmouth Town and Swaffham Town failed to join our area's second-round trio in the hat after being knocked out at the weekend.

Second round ties will be played on Saturday November 21. Winners will pocket £1,000 prize money.
