West Norfolk Scaffolding Sunday Football League
In the Second Round of the Norfolk Senior Cup, Chilvers edged another game closer to a quarter-final date with old foes, England’s Hope.
With the game switched to West Lynn, due to the unsuitability of River Lane, Chilvers finally played at home to Norman Wanderers, and thanks to the brilliance of Joe Jackson, their progress was fairly straightforward in a 5-2 win. Jackson scored all five goals! Chilvers now play Acle Wanderers at home on Sunday.
Whilst England’s Hope wait for their quarter-final opponents in the County Cup, they sit atop of the league going into the Christmas break.
Their latest win came at CSKA Emneth, 3-0, with Michael Chow nabbing a hat-trick, in a dominant win.
Clenchwarton, fresh from having their only win of the season removed after Long Sutton folded, took the lead through Chris Scammell against Burt and dominated the opening proceedings on a very wet and boggy pitch.
Burt equalised somewhat against the run of play and on the stroke of half-time went ahead after the linesman’s flag didn’t go up on a close offside call.
Burt dominated the second half and added goals from Lee Dix 2, Matty Gollands, Shaun Giles and another Rowan Smith wonder strike.
Thanks to both teams for switching the game to Clenchwarton to allow Chilvers to play at West Lynn; and to the stand-in referee.
At Castle Rising in the ‘Royal Estate Derby’ Flitcham were “Dans pays des merveilles” after Dans Child, Blackmuir and Fuller all notched in a 3-1 win to secure local bragging rights. Shane Grimes responded for CR Eastern in a below-par performance.
Can anybody stop Sutton St James in the league? This time in-form Tilney were made to pay by a ruthless Sutton side. Jamie Leet and Chris Young scored for the Lions, but Ash Godfrey 2, Alan Burch, Stuart Easey, Matt Rose and Jordan Healey kept Sutton comfortably top of the table.
The A149 derby took place at Heacham, where their Reserve side beat Dersingham Social Club in a promotion chasing clash, and a confidence boosting 4-2 win.
Kane Sharp and Luke Biles got Dersingham on the score sheet, but Tim Pepper, Martin Gibbs, Rian Benefer and Josh Everitt saw Heacham win the points.
River Lane made the long trip to Lincolnshire to take on Fleet and were made to work for the points in a 3-1 win. Damen Hardy scored for Fleet, but Lane ultimately proved too strong as they gained the win through Jack Moy, Joe Sadler and James Joyce.
Bottom side Watlington hosted Horsepigs Reserves, whose Firsts didn’t have a game. A very strong side overcame Watlington 20-0.
Scorers were Arron Hodson 6, John Murphy 6, Wayne Smith 3, Matt Willis 2, Lee Maplesden, Martin Bosanquet and Justin Naraseviciuis.
Division One: C.S.K.A Emneth v F.A.N.G.
Division Three: Elm v Horsepigs Res, Heacham Res v Watlington.
