THE Gods have again smiled down on the Blues as the draw for the fourth round of the FA Carlsberg Vase has again given the Town a home tie.

In the next round on January 17, the Blues will entertain Witney United who currently sit in third place in the Hellenic League.

In the last 32 of the national competition there are no easy ties left and you can only hope for a home draw and the Blues have been blessed with this.

It is the ninth home draw out of the last 10 single match ties that the Blues have had in the Vase over the last three years.

To reach the last 32, the Blues had to show their defensive abilities to the full to overcome a spirited fightback by Harefield in the second period.

The tie again attracted a massive crowd with the final figure being 842.

Tuesday's East Anglian Cup tie against Halstead Town was a much more subdued affair with a mixed side losing 1-3 to their First Division opponents.

Tomorrow it is back to league action with a visit to Norwich United, which is never one of the easier places to put on a good display.

The two outstanding home league matches have now been rescheduled with the return against Norwich United on Tuesday, January 6, and the Whitton United game dated for Tuesday, February 10.

The Reserves will be hoping to get back into action tomorrow when they face Haverhill Rovers Reserves in the second round of the Chell trophy.

This is a first leg match with the second dated for January 3.

The Youth team were due to entertain Dereham Town Youth last Wednesday before ending their 2008 programme with a visit to Soham Town Rangers in the Eastern Junior Cup on Monday, December 22.

The U17 side take on Caister on Sunday afternoon at Denes High School, kick off 12.30pm.
