Great Yarmouth Town can earn themselves a Norfolk derby at Thetford Town in the FA Vase – if they can get through their replay on Tuesday night.

The Bloaters travel to Debenham LC after their game on Saturday ended 1-1 after extra-time.

Great Yarmouth have already been to Thetford in the league this season, when they were 4-2 at the end of August.

There’s a home tie for new boys Norwich CBS, who will play Oxhey Jets, while Wisbech Town are at home to Felixstowe & Walton United and Wisbech St Mary welcome Whitton United.

The first round proper draw was held at Wembley Stadium on Monday afternoon when 101 ties were pulled out of the bag, featuring winning clubs from the weekend’s second round qualifying ties.

Added to that are 32 teams from Step 5 of the National League System, who enter the competition at this stage after finishing in the top four of their divisions last term without being promoted to the FA Trophy.

First round ties will take place on Saturday October 21 and winning clubs will receive £825 while losing clubs will receive £275 from the FA’s prize fund.

Local draws: Wisbech St Mary v Whitton United, Norwich CBS v Oxhey Jets, Thetford Town v Great Yarmouth Town or Debenham LC, Wisbech Town v Felixstowe & Walton United.
