The Norfolk Senior Cup is the oldest of the county’s cup competitions with a history that stretches all the way back to 1881, when Norfolk and Norwich became the inaugural winners beating Lynn Town three - one.

Neither Diss or Norwich will be making it to the cup finals this year however. Diss Town crashed out of this year’s cup on January 22 with a six - nil defeat to Dereham Town Football Club at home, and Norwich lost one - nil away to Mattishal on January 26.
