Dereham Town 1, Wroxham 2

Hard on the heels of their exit from the FA Vase, Dereham on Tuesday night were denied a Carrow Road Norfolk Senior Cup final place by the holders.

A bumper crowed turned up to see Norfolk's top two sides do Senior Cup semi-final battle. The Yachtsmen will now meet King's Lynn Reserves in the April 15 final.

In the 30th minute Dereham missed a great chance when Howell broke from the halfway line, raced into the box and picked out an unmarked Atkins with a low cross. But with the goal at his mercy, his poor first touch allowed McAnally to make a vital block.

In the 42nd minute Wroxham won a free-kick on the edge of the box that Lemmon lifted over the wall and just over the bar. However, the Yachtsmen took the lead from their next attack.

Defender Halliday delivered a deep cross from the right and striker Paul Cook headed home from four yards.
