The region's sides have been handed tricky FA Cup second qualifying round ties, to be played on Saturday, September 27.

King's Lynn Town were the only local side to be drawn at home but will have to beat higher league opposition if they are to secure the £4,500 prize money on offer in the form of Hednesford Town, who play in the Vanarama Conference North.

Lowestoft Town will have to hit the road against either Belper Town or Coalville, who replay on Tuesday evening after they drew 3-3 at the weekend. Belper operate in the rung below Lowestoft in the non-league pyramid in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division whilst Coalville are a step below that in the Evo-Stik Division One South.

Wroxham's reward for their 3-1 win over Mildenhall on Saturday is a trip to Leamington, who play in the Vanarama Conference North and drew 1-1 with Lowestoft Town at Crown Meadow earlier this season.

Damian Hilton's Norwich United side also face a long trip as they go to Barwell, who play two steps above the Planters in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division.

Dereham Town, who face a replay against St Neots at Aldiss Park on Tuesday evening, also potentially hit the road as they go to Boston United, who play in the Vanarama Conference North.
