Saffron Walden Town hope to take the first step on the road to Wembley when they host Sawbridgeworth in the FA Vase on Saturday.

The competition is for teams playing below step four in the pyramid, with the final held at the National stadium.

And the Bloods host Essex Senior League opponents who finished fifth last season with 83 points to their name.

Stansted and Diss have both lifted the FA Vase in the past 35 years, but Saffron are in for a tough test at Catons Lane (3pm).

They returned from Norfolk empty-handed at the weekend, following a 2-1 loss to Wroxham.

The hosts netted twice in the first half, but Graeme Turner replied with a late header, as James Ferguson was named man of the match.

There was better news for Keith Dicker’s reserves, who defeated Whitton United in their first game of the season, with man of the match Coby Game, Morris and Trendall all netting.
