Despite missing a number of first-choice players, Denver extended their winning streak to seven games and progressed to the last 16 with a well deserved victory against the Central & South Norfolk League side.

Billie Lawson doubled the advantage on 26 minutes by scoring from the penalty spot after being brought down in the box.
