Two-goal Kerion Stephenson was the hero as Ingoldisthorpe Reserves overcame West Winch Reserves in the North West Norfolk League Division Three League Cup final on Friday night.

The showpiece, held at Fakenham Town Football Club, proved to be the passionate and competitive final which many predicted.

There were just seven minutes on the clock when West Winch took the lead through Ryan Mott as his cross-cum-shot deceived Harry Campbell in the Ingoldisthorpe goal to give the Yellows the lead.

Ingoldisthorpeā€™s reaction was sharp and, as the tempo of the game increased, they equalised through a Kerion Stephenson close range finish on 19 minutes.

The speed of the game meant that both teams struggled to retain possession for long periods of time, but on the 26th minute it was Stephenson who once again drew the plaudits as he finished smartly after a delightful ball from Ant Rice.
