K&P embark on their biggest match for years tomorrow when in the second round of the FA Vase they take on high-flying Dereham Town.

With £1,200 awaiting the winners and a place in the last 64 of the country in the third round, this is the furthest K&P have ever gone in the national competition.

K&P embark on their biggest match for years tomorrow when in the second round of the FA Vase they take on high-flying Dereham Town.

With £1,200 awaiting the winners and a place in the last 64 of the country in the third round, this is the furthest K&P have ever gone in the national competition.

But they will have to be aware of the newly resurgent Dereham club, under the leadership of former Kings Lynn talisman Matt Henman - who took over from Bob Taylor last season.

Up front Dereham they have one of the most potent striking partnerships in the Ridgeons League in the shape of Chris Bacon and Nicky Howell.

There are no fresh injury worries for K&P, with long term injury victim Rob Horton now back in full training.

The match is being sponsored by new sponsor BIS Salimas and the match ball by Premier Brickwork.

There will be extra time if the scores are level after 90 minutes, then a replay at Dereham next Tuesday night.

If no replay is needed, then K&P will be in action at Norwich United in a league match, kick off 7.45pm.

The Reserves have seen the ups and downs of league action in this past week.

A 5-2 victory at Horsford took them to the top of the table but this was followed by a coupon busting 2-1 defeat at home to lowly Sole Bay on Tuesday night.

There is no game for the Reserves this week.

The A team, after a sterling performance away at Wenhaston in the junior cup where they eventually lost 2-0 to higher-league opponents, return to league action after a month's break.

Shaun Norman's side have an intriguing home clash against league leaders Hearts of Oak in Notley's Lowestoft and District League division one (KO 2pm).

K&P B, after a good showing against league leaders Gt Yarmouth Town Hall as they lost 6-3, are on their travels tomorrow as they take on Earsham in Notley's Lowestoft and District League division three.

The Youth team are at home next Wednesday evening to Norwich United Youth.
