SUNDAY, JANUARY 15
NORFOLK SUNDAY SENIOR CUP QUARTER-FINAL
Three teams began the day dreaming of the Carrow Road showpiece, and it ended with one team flying the Lynn Sunday League flag.
England’s Hope, top of the Lynn league, faced DE FC, who are top of the Norwich league and it was DE FC who edged it 3-2, despite a late Hope rally. Michael Chow and Joe Whyborn scored for Hope and they peppered the DE FC goal towards the end but DE FC, featuring ex-Linnet Richard Skelly, held firm for a hard-fought win.
CSKA FC and Clenchwarton faced each other at The Cage in Wisbech and it is CSKA who remain our sole representatives in the County Cup this season.
Max Mattless, Joe Woods, Aaron McKenna and Dave Abbott ensured CSKA keep the Carrow Road dream alive with Daniel Thiel-Ford grabbing a consolation for Clenchwarton.
Credit to Clenchwarton for ensuring CSKA had to fight for every goal and a huge congratulations to CSKA for being the first Lynn side in the Senior Semi-Final for a number of years.
The draw for the semi-final will be broadcast live on Radio Norfolk tonight (Friday, January 20) at 6.30pm.

With the League Cup Group Stage now over, it’s onto the two KO competitions, the League Cup and the Hardy Sheen Cup.

Rob Eves bagged two with single strikes for John Murphy and Danny Brooks. Josh Everett scored twice for Heacham.

Chris Cook scored the other.
CSKA Young Boys kept up their perfect league season to record win number 11, this time Sutton St.
James succumbing 5-1.
