Young Canaries face Norfolk Senior Cup trip to Dereham

Norwich City's youngsters will start their Norfolk Senior Cup campaign with a trip to Dereham Town.

Last night's draw handed the Canaries a trip to Aldiss Park on the week beginning Saturday, November 24.

The match is the latest in a long line of exciting cup ties for the Magpies, who reached the third qualifying round of this season's FA Cup and are still going strong in the FA Vase.

Matt Henman's side are still unbeaten in the Premier Division of the Thurlow Nunn League and will be looking forward to pitting their wits against City's top young players.

Holders Gorleston start the defence of the trophy with a home match against Thurlow Nunn League colleagues Norwich United while the side they beat at Carrow Road, Thetford Town, are at home to King's Lynn Town.
