Dereham Town are allowing accompanied under 14s free in to Tuesday night's Ridgeons League premier division match against Histon Reserves.

The Magpies are flying high after Saturday's FA Vase fourth round victory at Larkhall and hoping for a crowd of up to 250.

Victory for Dereham could take the team back up to third place in the table.

Chairman Simon Barnes said: “After a tremendous result at Bath on Saturday, where the boys represented the Town magnificently and were a credit to not only themselves, the football club but the town as a whole, it would be nice if we could see the people of Dereham come out and show their support of the team.

“We're playing some excellent football at the moment, probably the best seen at Aldiss Park. And I think once they have been and seen the standard, they will return.

“As a gesture from the club, we're admitting all children under the age of 14 free, when accompanied by an adult, for the Histon Reserves game. And it would be nice to have a gate of 200-250 for the match.”

*Dereham will be running coaches for fans to the FA Vase fifth round match at Needham Market and details will be announced shortly.
