LYNN & DISTRICT SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Sponsored by West Norfolk Scaffolding
The road to Carrow Road began for our teams on Sunday with five teams through to the Second Round of both the Senior and Intermediate Cups.
In an all-Lynn tie, Flitcham Bell found themselves away at England’s Hope, one of the teams expected to do well.
Hope showed they are taking this competition seriously with a professional 6-0 win over a hard-working “Winking Owls” side.
Flitcham battled to the end, but Hope’s quality shone through with goals coming from Paul Richardson 3, Sam Whyborn, Daniel Camp and Ben Jimson.
Burt crashed out 0-3 at home to Poringland, but with an improved showing on last week’s 11-0 collapse to Chilvers.
CSKA produced a good display against Lichfield Arms, keeping a clean sheet.
Jack Newman 2, Kai Ruff and Ryan Alexander ensured they progressed to Round 2.
Dersingham took on another of the fancied sides, Windmill, who made the long journey from Yarmouth in a great game. Dersingham more than deserved to take the game to extra time but a winner two minutes from time saw Windmill progress.
Dersingham were leading, and came from behind, but lost 5-4 after a ding-dong affair. Dersy scorers: Scott English, Brad Ely, Anton Ely and Timmy Pepper.
West Lynn travelled to Anglian Rovers, and dominated proceedings throughout, but somehow came away with nothing, losing 3-1. Nathan Young scored for West Lynn.
FANG hosted a strong Costessey West End side and despite goals from Isaac Bloodworth and Alex Oughton, they fell to a 4-2 home defeat.
Chilvers went through by virtue of a walkover, and Clenchwarton conceded their tie away at Gorleston.
Old White Bell and Sutton St. James shared a “Desmond” as they played out a 2-2 draw in Southery.
Paul Newcombe and Devon Furness notched for Sutton to ensure they won their first point of the season, but goal-machine and league top scorer, John Murphy, kept up his hot streak with a ‘Bell brace.
March Saracens made it two wins in a row with an emphatic 8-2 away win over CSKA Young Boys. Matthew Cox led the way with a triple. Ed Penteney and James Hazel notched a pair each, with Lewis Jupp adding the last.
No scorers sent in from CSKA.
CSKA Reserves had a quick chance to avenge last week’s home defeat to Elm, but Elm inflicted further misery with a 7-2 defeat. Kensey Carter bagged another hat-trick with Anth Horn scoring twice. Richard Hunt and Jack Whyborn. No scorers from CSKA.
CR Eastern continued their free scoring ways by smashing six past Necton who didn’t roll over and bagged three of their own.
Josh Murray and Curtis Morais both scored twice for CR, plus Ashley Prosper and Connor Walker. Nathan Bailey, Jamie Titmarsh and an OG netted for Necton.
Shouldham recorded their first goals and win of the season with an accomplished 4-2 win over Heacham. Chris Smith and George Patience scored for Heacham, who were never ahead in this game as Ryan MacKenzie, Sam Kent, Liam Thorpe and Jamie Langley scored for Shouldham.
