The Anglian Combination and Thurlow Nunn Leagues are guaranteed representation in the last four of the Norfolk Senior Cup after the quarter-final draw was made.

Two of the three remaining Combination sides were paired together – while the two survivors at the next level up will also come face to face next year.

Having won all seven of their matches in the Combination’s top flight Harleston Town should fancy their chances of making the semi-finals after being drawn at home to Norwich CEYMS, currently fifth from bottom after losing five of their nine fixtures.

Near neighbours Diss Town will also have home advantage when they take on Fakenham Town in a clash between Thurlow Nunn First and Premier Division teams.

Norwich United’s reward for beating holders Dereham in the previous round is a home clash with Long Stratton from the Combination top flight while two of the big guns, King’s Town Town and Wroxham, meet at The Walks.

The matches will be played on or around Saturday, February 11 while the final has been scheduled for Carrow Road on Monday, May 22.
