The Optic NEN League has suffered a major loss this week with one of its founder members, Dilham United, calling it a day.
They informed the league that due to a lack of players in a confined area, continuation was impossible.
Secretary Roger Bunton stated they were left with no other alternative than to take the sad decision. League secretary Malcolm Burton said he and his colleagues feared there would be more.
On field the play, it was Nicholsons of Stalham Benevolent Cup day and in a day of surprising results, last year's winners Corpusty went out, losing 1-0 at home to Runton, who will now entertain North Walsham Old Boys in the next round.
New boys Worstead saw off Division One outfit Lyng by the odd goal of three and will now visit Briston.
Aylsham A's reward for seeing off East Ruston by 3-0 margin is a home tie against Felmingham. Cromer Youth Old Boys' fine success over their Division Two visitors Aldborough Lions, winning 3-2, sees them travel to Gimingham next.
