All our Norfolk sides in Division One had byes, except for CR Eastern, Clenchwarton and CSKA, who all took part in the first round on Sunday.

CR Eastern were involved in the most amazing of matches at Poringland Wanderers.

CR Eastern were 4-1 up against a very strong Norwich Premier Division side. But Poringland managed to go 5-4 up before CR nabbed a late equaliser to send the game into extra time. Poringland gambled and it paid off as they scored two more to complete a remarkable 7-5 scoreline.

CR scored through Brad Key 2, Neil Goodbourn, Daniel Kerry and Curtis Morais.

CSKA hosted Sprowston and were held in a close game to a 1-1 draw at the end of 90 minutes. With the game in extra time, CSKA’s class showed as they powered in three unanswered goals for a comfortable 4-1 score. Max Matless led with a hat trick with Jordan Fiddes notching the other.

Clenchwarton faced a tough-looking Hethersett side from Norwich but put in a classy 90 minute performance to win 4-0. On the basis of this game, Clenchwarton could be dark horses for a decent cup run.

Billy Russell, Billy Pawsey, Dan Thiel-Ford and Nick Curtis all got on the scoresheet for the impressive Victory.


In a battle of the 100% records, William Burt hosted Shouldham and someone’s perfect season would be over. In a seemingly one-sided affair Shouldham romped to an emphatic 0-7 away win in impressive fashion.

The goals came from Louis Garrett 3, Henry Davidson, Jamie Langley, Sam Pontin and Tom Gilbert.

CSKA Young Boys continue their impressive early season form, dismantling Tydd St. Mary 0-9 away from home.

CSKA Young Boys record now reads scored 26 conceded 1 in just 3 games and they must be contenders to win the league now.

Tom Brazil, Joe Reed and Harry Brindle all bagged 2 apiece with singles for Tom Melton, Matt Ryan and Oli Williams.

In an all-Lincolnshire affair Fleet UC hosted Sutton St. James and the away side claimed their first win of the season, winning 1-7. Bragging rights were gained through Joe Harrison going nap with 5, Joe Johnson and Cameron Jones. Jonathan Clark scored Fleet’s consolation.

Three Holes hosted CSKA Reserves and the home side claimed the win with a 6-3 scoreline. Chris Webb, Phil Franklin and Jake Miller scored for CSKA Reserves.

No scorers sent in by Three Holes.
