AFC Lynn Napier Reserves book cup final spot against Costessey Sports Reserves
Saturday saw AFC Lynn Napier Reserves represent the North West Norfolk League in the semi-finals of the Norfolk Count FA Primary Cup.
They hosted Costessey Sports Reserves who had already won their respective league title, just like the Wiggenhall-based side, who have won Division Three of the North West Norfolk League.
Napier started quickly with Liam Simper chipping the keeper with a smart finish after just 17 minutes, before Charlie Royle scored a first half brace to send the home side in at half-time with a three-goal lead.
The second half started with the same tempo and saw Royle add another three goals to take his season total to 55 in just 21 games.
Napier Reserves will now travel to the FDC in Bowthorpe for the final, where they will play Sprowston A on Monday, May 16.
In Division One league action, Watlington travelled to Heacham Reserves with a second chance to claim the league title after last weekend’s loss to KLSC FC.
Unfortunately for them, a 3-2 loss now means that the league title is in the hands of KLSC FC for the first time this season, as should they win their final three games of the season, they will claim the title on goal difference.
It was a 3-2 victory for Heacham with Aiden Doughty, Curtis Morais and Josh Winner finding the net.
Marshland jumped off bottom spot and up to seventh in the table with a 3-2 win against Dersingham Reserves.
Dave Abbot claimed a brace for Marshland whilst Billy Eastwood and Sonny Devlin hit the target for Dersingham.
Terrington and Castle Rising went head-to-head in the first round of the George Graver Cup, with the Tigers setting up a second-round tie against Weeting Saxons after they secured a 2-1 victory.
Jordan Davies and Kodie Turvey scored the goals for Terrington.
The top two in Division Two faced off as Ingoldisthorpe left Reffley with a comfortable 5-2 victory to all but secure the league title. Ryan Younge, Ika Kortua and Jake Ess all got their name on the scoresheet for Ingoldisthorpe.
This week saw the start of the 2021/22 league cup finals being played at Fakenham Town, with 20 per cent of the admission being donated to the 8:56 Foundation.
All fixtures kick off at 7.30pm and are as follows: West Winch Res vs Ingoldisthorpe Res (tonight), Ingoldisthorpe vs Castle Rising (Wednesday, May 4) and Watlington vs KLSC FC (Friday, May 6).
