AFTER their elimination from the FA Vase, Dereham Town turn their attentions to the Norfolk Senior Cup on Saturday, at North Walsham in the fourth round.

The Magpies must beware of their high-flying Anglian Combination Premier Division hosts. The Shannocks are third in the chase for the Sterry Cup but are smarting from a Friday night 2-1 league defeat by Mattishall. With trophy options running out, a Carrow Road final is a fine incentive for Dereham.

THE Magpies had started well against the United Counties League Premier outfit. Dereham dominated the first half-hour with Danny Beaumont opening the scoring on four minutes, firing home from the edge of the box after a superb run by Ollie Willis.

But Newport headed an equaliser before adding another close-range goal to lead at half-time. In the second half Dereham could not reproduce the flowing football of the first period and Newport sealed victory with a third goal.

As part of their 125th anniversary celebrations Dereham Town Football Club is holding a players' re-union on Saturday, November 28 during the Felixstowe match. All former players are invited, meeting at Aldiss Park from 2pm.
