Thurlow Nunn Division One newcomers Wisbech St Mary have been handed a baptism of fire in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase.

The Saints will travel to Gorleston, who play in the division above them, in the first qualifying round on Saturday September 10.

The Norfolk side finished in 16th in the Thurlow Nunn’s top division last season.

There is a big prize on offer to Arran Duke’s men if they can pull off a shock and progress into the second qualifying round - a tasty home tie with local rivals, March Town a fortnight later.
