Lynn & District Sunday League sponsored by West Norfolk Scaffolding
It’s back to the bread and butter of league football as CSKA, West Lynn, Old White Bell and Necton all recorded maiden league wins on Sunday.
CSKA have had a nigh-on impossible start to the season, facing both FANG and England’s Hope.
They got their rewards with a resounding 10-0 win over Tilney Green Lions and are starting to make ‘The Cage’ a difficult place for visiting teams
CSKA’s goals: Jack Newman 3, braces for Ashton Hodgson, Dave Abbott and Aron McKenna, plus Jordan Goult one.
Old White Bell came from 3-1 down, and with 10 men, to overcome Flitcham Bell 5-4 in a ding-dong affair.
John Murphy continues to belie his years with a four-goal haul to extend his lead at the top of the scoring charts.
Connor Parnell scored twice with James Brennock and Matthew Coe scoring, giving the Winking Owls hope they could record their first win. Alas, it wasn’t to be as Matt Weeds completed the scoring for Bell.
West Lynn found their shooting boots in some style as Burt FC were put to the sword, 5-1. Kristian Rigg continued his fine form with another goal for Burt, but goals from Dean Twaite-Smith 2, Gary Halliday 2 and Kieran Twaite-Smith saw Wanderers home.
Clenchwarton gave Chilvers an almighty scare before Chilvers ran out 4-3 victors. Kyle Plumb 2, Liam Bowley and Jamie Burgess gave Chilvers a 4-1 lead, with Kyle Williamson scoring a free-kick for Clenchwarton. Adam Mason and Alex Forth ensured a tense ending.
England’s Hope ran out 4-0 winners at Sutton St James, who only had ten men, Michael Chow and Paul Richardson both scoring twice.
FANG visited Dersingham and overcame stern resistance to win 3-1. Billy Eastwood scored for Dersingham.
The big game in Division Two saw promotion hopefuls CR Eastern take on Heacham, with the game switched to Runcton Holme due to rabbit holes causing the Castle Rising pitch to be unplayable.
