Local clubs in Vase action

A clutch of local teams turn their attentions to FA Vase action on Saturday, with the east coast clash between local rivals Gorleston and Great Yarmouth Town arguably the pick of the local matches in the first round proper.

Gorleston are up among the front-runners in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division while the visitors are flying high in the First Division.

Yarmouth will be boosted not only by their own form – unbeaten in 12 league and cup games – but also by a slight blip in the Greens', who have won just one of their last six in all competitions.

Norwich United, fifth in the Premier Division, are at home to Bowers & Pitsea, from the Essex Senior League.

Managerless Diss Town have good memories of the Vase, having won it in 1994, but their form is patchy and they face a difficult task at home to Eynesbury Rovers, of the United Counties League Division One.

Rovers campaign at one level lower than the Tangerines, but are in form, sitting third in their table.

Thetford Town travel to Huntingdon Town, who are fourth in the UCL Premier, while Swaffham Town entertain Essex outfit Hullbridge Sports.
