Norwich City or Lowestoft Town will host AFC Wimbledon in the first round of the SSE Women's FA Cup.

The rivals saw their fourth round qualifying tie postponed on Sunday and will try again at Plantation Park at 1pm this Sunday.

The victors will host fellow SE Division One side Wimbledon in the next round on Sunday, December 4, and will also earn £600 in prize money.

Acle United have been drawn against C&K Basildon, who play three levels higher than them, following their 3-0 win over Brentwood Town on Sunday.

Goal from Jody Wells and Anna Larkins, as well as a late own goal, secured victory for the Eastern Premier Division side at the home of Great Yarmouth Town, The Wellesley.

Basildon are currently fifth in the Women's Premier League Southern Division, at step two in the women's football pyramid, and compete against the likes of Cardiff, Tottenham and Charlton.

First round proper victors claim £800 in prize money and would be six wins away from a Wembley final.
