Wroxham's unbeaten start to the season came to a halt on Saturday when they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Ridgeons Premier League rivals Kirkley & Pakefield.

Nick Shorten's team are charting new waters in the world's oldest knockout competition and go into today's draw for the first time in their history after goals by Ryan DeCoteau and 17-year-old Ian Dawson set up a 2-1 win over the champions.

Andy Key pulled one back for the Yachtsmen on 65 minutes but despite an all-out assault on the home goal, Damian Hilton's team - who have won their first seven league games this season - were unable to break through.

Dawson has been selected for the Suffolk Under-18s side who play Leiston on Thursday - ruling him out of Kirkley's game against Norwich United the previous night.

Mildenhall are still in the cup, but face a replay after a 1-1 draw at home to Haverhill Rovers.

In the Ridgeons Premier Division, Dereham came from behind to beat Woodbridge 3-2 at Aldiss Park. Robert Taylor's team are now seventh in the table, helped by Lowestoft's 2-1 defeat at Wisbech, and have games in hand on everyone around them.

Lee O'Neill put Woodbridge ahead after just three minutes, but Nicky Howell levelled matters quarter of an hour later, steering home from Terrington's curling free-kick.

Dereham went behind for a second time when O'Neill added his second just before the break, but goals by Sam Willis and Howell's second on 65 minutes earned Dereham the win.

Lowestoft are two places behind after their set-back in the fens, while King's Lynn's second string did well to secure a 2-2 draw at Felixstowe & Walton. Swaffham were held at home by the same scoreline against Walsham-le-Willows.

Division One leaders Thetford went on a goal spree with a 7-0 win at bottom side Fakenham. Matt Zdrenka started the rout after just two minutes, against a side down to 11 players when Josh Cooper was injured in the warm-up. Carl Pask added two before half-time, and added another brace after the break, with Kwone Jones and substitute Kev Zdrenka completing the scoring.

Diss fought back in the second half at home to March Town to draw 3-3. The visitors were 2-0 up at the break, but Diss got back into the game with goals from Dale Vince and Mark Angel. March regained the lead but Vince earned a point with a late equaliser.

Yarmouth went down 2-0 at home to Hadleigh United, neighbours Gorleston were 3-0 winners at second-bottom Long Melford, but Downham Town could only draw 0-0 at home to Halstead.
