Flitcham Bell made the semi-finals of the Cherrington Cup after a confident performance in beating Sutton St James 5-1.

Nick Ainslie scored for Sutton but a rejuvenated Flitcham romped home thanks to strikes from Danny Child 2, Andy Poyiadzis, Ryan Taylor and Jordan Grass.

CSKA and England’s Hope battled out at The Cage and the game was always going to be a tight affair and was decided by the slenderest of margins, one goal. And it was Hope who progressed, thanks to match winner Joe Whyborn.

Chilvers joined them in the semi-finals after overcoming plucky Clenchwarton 4-1. Shane Akers gave Victory the lead before a game changing penalty miss from Clenchwarton. Joe Jackson punished Clenchwarton by equalising before a Danny Jezeph hat-trick won the game.

Dersingham v Tilney GL fell afoul of the weather and will be replayed at a later date.


Three Holes made the semi-final in their debut season after an emphatic 12-1 away win over CSKA Reserves. Dan Cowell and Dan Hempson were chief tormentors with four goals each, plus a David Knights hat-trick and Toby Retchless one.

Elm travelled to March in an-all Cambs affair and walked away 3-1 victors thanks to Kensey Carter, Leon Murphy and Anth Horn. Jermaine Watson scored for March.

Heacham hosted CSKA Young Boys and came away with a hard-fought 4-2 win. Tyrone Elms and Tom Brazil scored for Young Boys with Josh Everett 2, Sam Pishorn and Tom Williams scoring for Heacham.

CR Eastern progressed after Shouldham were unable to raise a side.


Having both been defeated in the first round of the Cherrington, FANG hosted West Lynn in a league fixture.

FANG took advantage of Chilvers’ cup involvement and moved into second place in the league thanks to a 4-1 win, scoring through Steve Aspery 2, Tommy Rix and Isaac Bloodworth. Alec Wilkinson replied for Wanderers.


Tydd St Mary claimed their maiden win of the season with a 6-1 triumph over West Winch William Burt and as a result, William Burt replaced Tydd at the foot of the table.

Aidan Clarkson scored for Burt but braces came from Jamie Taylor and Sam Cooper for Tydd, plus Ryan Brothwell and Scott Roberts.
