Denver gain sweet cup revenge over Docking

North West Norfolk Football League

Division Three League Cup

Denver 4 Docking 3

Denver gained sweet revenge for a 6-2 league defeat by securing an unexpected victory over Docking.

Three well-worked team moves were coolly finished by James Emmerson, Matty Willis and Ben Young to give Denver a 3-1 lead at half-time.

Docking got back into the match from the penalty spot after the break before Aidan Hood restored the home team’s two-goal cushion with a fine individual effort.

Carl Meek scored his second for the visitors three minutes from time to add to Kris Goldsmith’s earlier strike but Denver held on for a well deserved win.

The very poor weather on Saturday afternoon took a heavy toll on the fixtures with eight games being postponed or abandoned.

In the semi-finals of the Birds Sport and Outdoor Benevolent Cup, Stoke Ferry received a walk-over when Bridgham Utd could not field a team.

They will meet Tacolneston in the Final in April, after Tacolneston beat Shipdham 5-3 in the other semi-final.

In Division 3, Feltwell Utd Res won by the only goal of the game at Dereham Athletic and climb above their opponents as a result.

In the Fen Regis Invitation Shield, Castle Acre Swifts Res opened their account with a 4-3 win at Walsingham Utd.

Swaffham Town FC will be hoping the weather will settle and let the club’s teams get back to their respective seasons.

As well as the first team game being off, the Pedlars Reserves - despite valiant efforts to clear the snow from the Shoemakers Lane pitch - lost out to the blizzard conditions last weekend, making it impossible to see the lines.

On Sunday the Veterans also missed out on their fixture due to the conditions.

Tomorrow, Swaffham welcome Needham Market Reserves to Shoemakers Lane, kick off 3pm. The Reserves travel to Blofield United Reserves and the Veterans are at home on Sunday to Tavern Old Boys, KO 2pm.
