England’s Hope hosted West Lynn in a switched fixture with a place in the semi-finals up for grabs, writes Rob Bunting.

West Lynn put up a brave fight but fell to the power of Hope in a competitive 0-4 defeat. Ricky Gunns, Sam Whyborn, Paul Richardson and Ryan Peacock ensured Hope were the first team into the League Cup semi-finals.

Clenchwarton v Heacham in the League Cup 1st Round was postponed and will be played this Sunday.


Only one game survived the frost and rain with Dersingham hosting Old White Bell, and Bell moved joint-third with an emphatic 6-1 away win. Old White Bell are joint top scorers in the league with 44, but if they hadn’t conceded 44 this season, they could well be a lot higher.

Anton Ely scored for Dersingham with John Murphy and Marcus Cumberbatch both grabbing braces for Bell. Jamie Plummer and Kyran Stannard grabbed the others.


CR Eastern suffered just their second league defeat in 11 games, going down 3-1 to ‘Jekyll and Hyde’ side, Shouldham. Shouldham were well worth their win, and if they can get some consistency, they may climb the table.

Travis Toll notched for the still-league leaders, but Jamie Langley and TWO own goals, saw Shouldham home.

Elm played Tydd St Mary in a switched fixture and ran away 10-0 winners with Richard Hunt four goals, Shane Green 2, Kensey Carter 2 and Jamie Cobbin 2.

March fell just short of their fourth league win of the season, 2-3 at home to CSKA Reserves, who leapfrogged them in the table. They now sit one place below their Young Boys side.

March scorers: Dan Smethurst and Ed Penteney; CSKA: Connor Ratcliffe, Scott White and Josh Pearce.

CSKA Young Boys beat basement boys William Burt 7-2 with Tom Brazil bagging a three-piece. Joe Reed two, Callum Elsey and Jake Gent. James Hawes and Adam Ledley scored for Burt.

This Sunday sees the first semi-finals of the season with Shouldham hosting CSKA Young Boys and Tydd St Mary hosting William Burt in the Hardy Sheen semi-finals.
