Wroxham will have to get through two tough away ties if they are to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Vase.

The Yachtsmen were yesterday handed the prospect of a trip to either Royston Town of the Spartan South Midlands League or Tipton Town of the Aspire Midland Alliance in the fifth round of the competition.

But first they must get past Armthorpe Welfare, following the postponement of original tie due to snow and ice in Yorkshire. That fixture now takes place this Saturday, with Wroxham turning their attention to the Norfolk Senior Cup tonight when they host Norwich United (7.45).

The Planters are likely to have Lee Hunter, Matty Robinson and Warren Preston all available after injury.
