The league is guaranteed a minimum of two and potentially four teams in the Norfolk Senior Cup Quarter Final.

England’s Hope are fancying their chances of glory this year after dispatching Norwich Sunday League’s leading team, Acle Rangers.

A goal inside the first minute from Paul Richardson settled any Hope nerves. Further goals from Ricky Gunns and Sam Whyborn sent Hope into a winnable quarter-final at home to DE FC.

CSKA in an all-Lynn league affair romped away to a 5-1 win at Maltings. Goals, Maltings: Jake Wiseman; CSKA: Ryan Alexander (4) and Dave Abbott.

CSKA face a potential third all-Lynn league tie in a row as they have been drawn at home to Clenchwarton or Dilham Cross Keys, who play this coming Sunday.

Old White Bell’s run came to an end at the hands of Yarmouth’s top side, Windmill. Windmill ran out 0-9 winners.

West Lynn host Riverside on Sunday and should they win they will host Windmill.


Three Holes were our only representatives in the previous round and that stat continues after a 0-3 away win over Barracks FC, thanks to goals from Dan Cowell, Dan Hempson and Andrew Turner.

They will now face Norwich CEYMS or North Walsham away in the quarter final.


MacMillan bowed out of the competition with a 2-1 away defeat at Cambourne Church. Elm’s game against Murrow Bell was postponed and will be played this coming Sunday.


Heacham hosted CR Eastern in a game switched from Castle Rising due to an unplayable pitch.

But that was where the goodwill ended as Heacham bagged a 7-2 win with Danny Jezeph scoring six. An unfortunate own goal was accountable for the other goal.

Ashley Prosper and Curtis Morais notched for CR.


March Saracens are bang on form at the moment and claimed another win, 5-0 over William Burt. March scorers were Dan Blake, James Schumann, Karl Anderson, Ash Taylor and Andrew Abbott.

Tydd St Mary had their game moved to near neighbours Sutton St James and Shouldham were the visitors.

Shouldham ran up their biggest win of the season in a 13-1 win. Joe Evling-White scored for Tydd but Shouldham had the goals raining in, courtesy of hat-tricks for Craig Hawkes and Jamie Langley with Louis Garrett going one better and notching four.

Henry Davidson helped himself to two with Phil Writer scoring once.

Fleet made the short trek to CSKA Reserves who bagged another three points. CSKA found themselves 4-0 up in the second half before Fleet threatened an almighty comeback with two lobbed goals. CSKA bagged a fifth and saw the game out. Stuart Stephens scored two almost identical goals for Fleet with CSKA scoring through Chris Webb 3, Connor Ratcliffe and Nathan Watson.
