Shouldham booked their place in the last four of the Sunday Senior Norfolk Cup after John Murphy inspired them to a comfortable victory over league rivals West Lynn Sunday.

A dominant first half display saw Murphy open the scoring with a cross-cum-shot before the same player doubled Shouldham’s advantage with a spectacular individual effort.

Murphy completed his hat-trick with a tap-in and although West Lynn fought back it was Martyn Williams who rounded off an excellent 4-0 victory.

Southery ASA were 2-0 up against Norwich and District Sunday League team Qube, with goals from Matty Weeds and Marcus Cumberbatch.

But the visitors fought back well to secure a 5-2 success by the final whistle.
