2013 Carter Cup winners Great Witchingham.


The draw for the second round of the Carter Cup has thrown up the possibility of some giant-killings with Norfolk’s five East Anglian Premier League sides all facing Alliance opposition.

The biggest challenge has been handed to Stow, currently going well in Division One following their relegation last season. They face a daunting trip to EAPL leaders Swardeston on Sunday, June 15.

Premier Division Downham might just fancy their faces at Norwich, the side that pipped them to the title last year, while a clash of two sides who have started slowly sees Sprowston host Vauxhall Mallards.

Elsewhere Horsford travel to Mattishall of Alliance Division One and Great Witchingham travel to top flight Fakenham.


Carter Cup second round: Cromer v Garboldisham, Mattishall v Horsford, Swardeston v Stow, Diss v Brooke, Norwich v Downham, Ashmanhaugh & Barton Wanderers v Old Buckenham, Sprowston v Vauxhall Mallards, Fakenham V Great Witchingham. 11am starts.

Lady Mary Trophy quarter-finals: Lowestoft v Acle, Beccles v Martham, Hardingham v North Runcton, Dereham v Swaffham. 1pm starts.
