Thetford Town could find themselves top of the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division at the end of this weekend.

The Brecklanders climbed up to second in the fledgling table after drawing 0-0 at home with Kirkley & Pakefield on Tuesday night.

Stow will travel to Felixstowe & Walton United in the second round of the Omni Freight Services Suffolk Premier Cup in November, while Walsham have been handed a home tie against Brantham.
