Yachtsmen keep heroes under wraps

Manager David Batch won't be risking any members of his FA Vase starting line-up this evening when Wroxham return to the bread of butter of Ridgeons League action at Norwich United.

Manager David Batch won't be risking any members of his FA Vase starting line-up this evening when Wroxham return to the bread of butter of Ridgeons League action at Norwich United.

The Yachtsmen gave themselves a glorious chance of playing at Wembley at the weekend when they won 2-0 at Sussex side Whitehawk in the first leg of their Vase semi-final.

Batch's outfit are now fully focussed on Saturday's return leg, which is expected to attract a record crowd to Trafford Park, and a second choice side will be representing the club in tonight's Premier League derby clash.

'The FA Vase is obviously our priority now and the lads who started at the weekend will be sitting out the game against Norwich United so they are fresh for Saturday,' said Batch. 'The players who started on the bench at Whitehawk will be involved though -so they will have a chance to impress.'

Dereham Town were involved in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Mildenhall last night. The Magpies went 2-0 down early on, with Ryan Foster and Aaron Turner scoring for the hosts, but then they turned the game around completely.

Stuart King, Danny Beaumont and Adam Smith all netted as Dereham moved 3-2 ahead on the hour mark. But they couldn't hold on for the win as Turner netted again on 88 minutes to give his side a draw.
