LYNN & DISTRICT SUNDAY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
HARDY-SHEEN TROPHY SEMI-FINAL
CSKA Young Boys were awaiting the winners in the final as Tydd St Mary hosted West Winch William Burt in a game switched to Sutton Bridge after Tydd’s pitch was declared unplayable.
Neither Tydd nor this incarnation of Burt have ever played in a final before so the motivation was there to progress.
Tydd romped into their maiden final with an emphatic 7-0 win. Jamie Taylor led the way with three goals, supported by a Ryan Jones brace and single strikes from Ryan Smith and Gary Simons.
The final, held at Wisbech Town FC, against CSKA Young Boys, will be played on Sunday, April 17, with a 1.30pm kick-off.
