Dereham Town lost Tuesday night's home League Cup tie 2-1 to Wroxham.

The Yachtsmen needed extra time to beat the Magpies in an all-Premier derby. Former Dereham player Olly King ended a superb counter-attack to give Wroxham an early lead but Robbie Harris headed the equaliser nine minutes from normal time. The winner was a 25-yard blast by Steve Spriggs.

Yarmouth celebrated their first win over close rivals Gorleston for 12 years when they beat them 3-1. They needed extra time to do it after former Bloater Steve Taylor had equalised Stewart Roach's opener. Sub Jake Reed restored their lead in the extra period before Roach struck again to seal the tie.

The other Norfolk derby saw Diss win 1-0 at Swaffham with a first-half goal from Mark Shadrack from a free-kick.
