Both teams sealed their progression with wins in third round qualifying on Sunday, with Norwich thrashing Peterborough-based side Riverside 10-0 and Lowestoft beating Enfield Town 2-0 at Crown Meadow, thanks to two goals from Hannah Waters.

They are joined in fourth round qualifying by Acle United, who won 6-3 at Bungay Town, earning a home tie against Brentwood Town – with the winning clubs each winning £500 in prize money.

Ex-Bungay player Kate Pasque headed Acle ahead early on and a Rebecca Burton penalty doubled the lead in the 18th minute, only for Rebecca Calver and Michelle Stanborough to level for the hosts before the break.

Stanborough fired Bungay in front soon after half-time and also hit the crossbar, before goals from Luka Goodfield, Pasque and two late strikes from Jody Wells rescued the situation for Acle.

Norwich took the lead with barely a minute played against Riverside, when Natasha Snelling found the back of net.
