WEST NORFOLK SCAFFOLDING SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
The League Cup took centre stage this weekend with seven of the eight first round games taking place.
It all went pretty much to form but West Lynn and Heacham Reserves upset higher level opposition.
West Lynn, of Division Three, travelled to CR Eastern of Division Two, and despite Curtis Morais scoring, again, for CR, goals from Ben Whitby, Nathan Young and Daniel Griffith saw Wanderers go into the draw for the second round.
Heacham Reserves, again of Division Three, travelled to a resurgent Long Sutton of Division One, and with 65 minutes on the clock, Heacham were winning 5-2 before rain called an end to play. The outcome of this match will be reviewed at the next meeting.
Chilvers were pushed all the way by a battling Horsepigs Reserve side, and eventually triumphed 6-4. Aaron Proctor grabbed a triple, with Danny Jezeph, Kris Smith and Zac Fountain grabbing the others. Matthew Weeds 2, Arron Hodson and Terry Whitwell scoring for the ‘Pigs.
Englands Hope look well on course for a double after demolishing Division Three side Elm, 7-0. Full credit to Elm who kept going right to the whistle. Ben Jimson and Ashley Doncaster both grabbed two apiece with Joe Whyborn, Keith Camp and Jack Whyborn also notching.
Dersingham struck eight past divisional rivals Watlington, without reply. Anton Ely grabbed 3, Tom Finnegan 2, with singles for Luke Biles and Harry Nash.
Wisbech Social squeezed past Tydd St Mary by the odd-goal in five. Kenzie Carter grabbed 2 with Richard Hunt also scoring for Wisbech. Ryan Andrews and Gary Simons scoring for Tydd, who despite pressing, couldn’t find the equaliser.
River Lane squeezed past a determined Fleet side by the slimmest of margins, 1-0. Despite finishing with 10 men, Lane held on. Jack Moy scored the only goal.
FANG joined England’s Hope level at the top of Division One on 15 points after brushing past CSKA Emneth 4-0. Chez Rust, Jamie Buhlemann, Sam Garner and Ashley St. John scoring the goals that took FANG top.
Sutton St James continue to be the team to beat after they dismantled 10-man March Saracens 10-2. The game wasn’t as easy as the score line suggests with the depleted Saracens holding Sutton at 2-2 before Sutton went on the rampage. Ashley Taylor and Jake Stockbridge had Saracens in the game, but Jake Clitheroe 3, Ashley Godfrey 3, Phil Newton 2, Alan Burch and Andy Cooper saw Sutton extend their lead at the top.
Tilney recorded their first win in four games to get their season back on track when they beat Farmers Arms 5-1. Jason Chilton was again the hero with a hat-trick. Jordi Scott-Henson and Dom Richmond also scoring. Jamie Flores scoring for Farmers.
