Wroxham, who are next at home against Felixstowe & Walton in the Ridgeons League, were knocked out of the FA Cup in a preliminary round match by the Magpies.

Dereham had the better chances first period and led 1-0 at half-time. In the 22nd minute Wroxham keeper Phil Smith flapped at a corner from Craig Terrington and the ball hit Danny Beaumont at the far post and went in. Danny Self cleared an effort from Magpies' skipper Adam Gusterson off the line.

At the start of the second half Wroxham piled on the pressure and had two shots cleared off the line, Paul Cook heading against the bar. Wroxham felt they had a stonewall penalty denied when Any Key appeared to be fouled, the referee waving play on.
