Wroxham, Kirkley & Pakefield and Needham Market will fly the Ridgeons League flag in the fourth round of the FA Vase on January 16.

Kirkley & Pakefield had a comfortable 4-0 win at previous winners Hoddesdon Town and Wroxham were 3-1 victors at Flackwell Heath. Needham Market edged the all-Ridgeons third round tie 2-1 at CRC with an injury time winner from Damien Hilton,

Stanway Rovers, Ely City and Leiston all bowed out.

A highly impressive team display saw K&P cruise through on a plasticine surface. At the start K&P were extremely dangerous on breakaways with Henderson giving full back Kevin Metiver a roasting

On 21 minutes a well-worked quick corner was converted by Nathan Stone.

Another set-piece move brought a goal for a rampant K&P in the 32nd minute. A free-kick was turned in with a well-timed header by skipper Joe Jefford.

Robert Woodcock was a redundant keeper as K&P launched waves of attacks.

Three minutes after the break it was 3-0. From another well-worked corner Chris Henderson weaved his way towards goal and curled his shot home.

Stone wrapped up a sporting tie which was controlled superbly by the Aylesbury referee Andy Gillett when he finished off a scintillating move by Russell Stock and man of the match Henderson - tucking the ball into an unguarded net on 67 minutes.

At Flackwell Heath, the Yachtsmen's Paul Cook opened the scoring in the 10th minute but Flackwell Heath equalised on 15 minutes with an own goal from keeper Scott Howie.

Two second-half goals from Cook and Steve Spriggs saw Wroxham through.
