King's Lynn are on course for their 20th Norfolk Senior Cup triumph after their reserves booked a place in the April 15 final at Carrow Road with a 6-1 win at Gorleston.

The young Linnets shared the goals round six different scorers - Elliott Fidy, Rory Harper, Dominic Dwyer, Ross Kelly, Luke Fell and Martin Rudd - with Lee Hunter responding for the Greens.

The club's first final appearance for 15 years - their first team lost to Fakenham in 1994 - will be against Dereham or Wroxham, who play tomorrow.

As if reaching the FA Vase last eight wasn't enough, there was further good news for Lowestoft when they left the field after their fifth round thriller.

Leiston, their big rivals for the Ridgeons League title, had been held 1-1 at home by relegation battlers Norwich United, who went behind to a goal from James Rowe but equalised ten minutes from time through Keith Hetherington.

The result means that matters are no longer entirely in Leiston's hands, as they have been for most of the season. Though they have six games in hand they trail Lowestoft by 20 points.

In the only other Premier Division game played, two first half goals from Danny White and two in the second by Gary Gilmore gave Wroxham a 4-2 win over Woodbridge, who replied through Glenn Snell and a Josh Carus own goal.

In Division One Yarmouth moved up to fifth with a 4-1 win over March. Scott Woodcock scored twice for the Bloaters with the other goals coming from Stuart Roach and Adam Sewell.
