Ex-Norwich City stars aiming to fire Wroxham to FA Vase glory

5 February 2020

Despite Norwich City not being in action this weekend, there is still plenty of local football around Norfolk for supporters to enjoy.

Just over eight miles from Carrow Road, Wroxham will host Stowmarket Town in a huge FA Vase fifth round clash.

Wroxham’s side is likely to feature former City players Grant Holt and Simon Lappin, with Adam Drury on the sidelines as assistant manager.

The location for Wroxham’s Trafford Park can be found here. Kick-off is at 3pm on Saturday with tickets priced at £7 for adults and £5 for concessions.

Elsewhere, National League North leaders King’s Lynn Town face a trip to Gloucester City on Monday night.

The Linnets currently lead the way in the hunt for automatic promotion to the fifth tier of English football and will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat to Kidderminster Harriers.

Canaries youngsters Alfie Payne and Simon Power could feature once again for Ian Culverhouse’s side.

In the Isthmian League North Division, Dereham Town face a trip to Essex side Tilbury on Saturday.

It’s important game in the Magpies’ search for a play-off spot with Tilbury currently occupying the final place with around a third of the season left to go.

Another local side facing an away trip this weekend is Norwich United. The Planters travel to Kirkley and Pakefield in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division (3pm KO).  

Elsewhere in the same division, Gorleston travel to Ely City, Thetford Town face a visit to Godmanchester Rovers and Swaffham Town host Brantham Athletic. All those kick-offs are at 3pm.

Norwich City Women are also in action this weekend. They host Leyton Orient at Plantation Park on Sunday (2pm).
