King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: Clenchwarton’s defeat signals end of proud county-cup record
04:15 16 January 2014
The King’s Lynn Sunday League have had representation it at least one county cup final every year since 1995/96 – but that run is now over.
Clenchwarton, the organisation’s final remaining hope, fell 4-1 at New Buckenham in the Norfolk Intermediate Cup quarter-final. Adrian Hill equalised but three late goals sent Bucks through to the semis.
In league action, three Division One matches were postponed due to waterlogged pitches. Terrington took full advantage with a 5-0 win over Gaywood Park Rangers. A head-earned clean sheet was a bonus and the goals came from a Steve Girdlestone penalty and four second-half strikes from Robert Palmer.
Richard Hunt scored for Wisbech Wanderers but they crashed to their latest defeat, 6-1 at home to Lynn Napier. Ryan Juby (3), Peter Sinclair (2) and Johnny Marlow notched for the Nap.
In Division Two, Tilney Green Lions won 4-2 at home to CR Eastern Province. L Stevens, Kai Scott-Henson, D Bond and R Precey scored for the Lions. Curtis Morais and M Rosa netted for CREP. March Saracens thumped River Lane 6-1 to return to winning ways. M Gilbert was the sole scorer for the visitors while Jermaine Watson (3), J Stocksbridge, A Taylor and Dan Smethurst bagged for the Cambridgeshire outfit.
V Mackie (2), J Harrison (2), S Cooper, R Brothwell, S Copeland and M Garner found the net in Long Sutton’s 8-2 demolition of Maides Head. R Cornforth and S Wilcox struck consolations. Flitcham Bell scored through Steven Pearson (2), L Mille, L Claydon, Dan Fuller, E Cottington, M Warnes, R Cunliffe and an own goal to hammer Hustlers 9-2. Ben English and D Gill netted for the hosts.
Kal Tansley (3), C Copeland and Tom Rainsbury bagged as Hunstanton won 5-0 against Elm while Adrian Flux went one better at home to Fleet thanks to goals from Kieran MacKender (3), Matt Sopp, C Smith and S Dickerson.
