NEEDHAM Market have been handed a home draw in the quarter-finals of the FA Vase in today's draw.

Needham, semi finalists two years ago and quarter-finalists last season, have been drawn at home to Royston Town or fellow Ridgeons League side Wroxham. Those two must play their Fifth Round tie this coming Saturday.

Royston are currently 11th in the Spartan South Midland Premier Division but do have games in hand. They also put Stanway Rovers out earlier in the competition. Needham have been quoted as second favourites to win the competition from some bookmakers.

Favourites Whitley Bay will travel to fellow Northern League Division One Shildon if they can overcome Chertsey Town in their replay while Gresley (formerly Gresley Rovers and runners-up in 1991) have home advantage against Sussex based Whitehawk or Yorkshire's Marske United. In the other tie Devon's Willand Rovers or Midland Alliance leaders Barwell received a home tie against Northern League Division One Norton and Stockton Ancients.
