Belton on Primary Cup trail

Great Yarmouth & District Football League

It was another generally good week for league clubs in the Norfolk Primary Cup.

The tie of the round was the all-league tie between hosts Belton and Caister CC.

In a game that some were predicting would be to close to call, the home side made it through to round three by winning 4-0. On this evidence Belton will believe they can go a long way in this competition.

Arches made it through by beating Circle Anglia of the Norwich Business Houses League. It was certainly a lot closer for Arches than the previous round, but they did enough to book a place in the last 32 by winning 3-1 at Mill Lane.

South Yarmouth strolled through with a comprehensive 6-0 win over Lowestoft League side Earsham at Halvergate. Caister Youth made it four as they defeated Aylsham A from the North East Norfolk League. The home side took the honours winning by 4-2 at Allendale to book their place.

MK United Reserves, on the back of the first team's excellent result last week in the Junior Cup, made it a club double by booking their place in the next round of the Primary Cup by winning 8-2 over Central and South Norfolk League side Narborough Reserves.

The league did, however, lose The Wellington as they lost by a solitary goal to former winners Yaxham.

It was a much-improved performance from Wellington who will take this into their next game. The league also lost Prostar Windows as they went down 3-0 at Snettisham.

The draw for the next round will take place tonight on BBC Radio Norfolk at 6.30pm.

No mistaking top billing in Division One as Catfield played Albion on Mill Lane. Catfield on the back of their Junior Cup defeat were looking to bounce back against Albion who have had some impressive results.

Both sides fought and battled but when the 90 minutes were up it had finished 2-2.

Bohemians moved back top of Division One with a 5-0 win over fellow Lynn Grove side Yarmouth Peelers.

The result means Bohemians are now the only side in either division to still hold a 100 per cent record and that after only four league games.

MK United made ground up at the top with a win over Norfolk and Chance at Mill Lane. This win means they are only three points adrift of the leaders.

Feathers, meanwhile, gained their first points of the season with a 5-0 win over Caister A. After the cancellation of a referee, the league would like to thank Feathers and Caister for arranging an alternative and getting the match played.

Great Yarmouth International are moving up the table after a 5-2 win over a never-say-die Yarmouth United at Mill Lane that included a strike for Americo Gomes.

This week sees the first official round of games in the two divisional league cups. Just like last year each team plays each other once, with the top two going through to the semi-finals in March. This is 90 minutes only and played on a league basis.
