Cup finalists decided

The finalists for this seasons Nicholson's of Stalham Benevolent Cup were decided at the weekend in the NPSS NEN League, when holders Gimingham were comprehensively beaten 7-0 when visiting Runton.

Their cause was not helped having had their numbers reduced by one, the home side scored seven times without reply with Paul Winterbone scoring five of them, the others coming from Tony Edwards and Tom Graver. The other semi was a much closer affair with third division Felmingham taking their first division hosts North Walsham 'A' to extra-time, it was two apiece at the end of normal time with Walsham advancing to the final by scoring twice in extra-time, on target for them were Alistair Dunlop and Jordan Tipple both claiming a brace with Declan Katra also netting a brace for Felmingham.

Haisboro Athletic, holders of the REW Subsidiary Cup have again reached this year's final following their semi-final win at Erpingham, here again it was another close encounter going right to the wire with the holders finally taking the tie by the odd goal of seven, their marksmen being a hat-trick from James Underhill and one from Steve Shaw and on target for the home side were Andy Adams (2) and James McMillian. The holders will meet East Ruston who had to come from 2-0 down at half time (James Lawrence 2) to go through by the odd goal of five after extra-time thanks to goals from Mark Burton (2) and Ash Wilton.

In the only game in the Slater & Frith Division One, Worstead hit Horning for six without reply at home.

In the Wayford Nurseries Division Two, Aldborough Lions moved within a point of second placed Plumstead Rangers following their 1-0 win over Cawston as the Rangers were held to a 1-1 draw away at Holt 'A', Corpusty Reserves and Blakeney shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw whilst Hickling scored a 7-3 home over Gimingham Reserves.

In Knights Trophies Division Three, Southrepps virtually secured promotion following their 2-1 away success at Holt Colts.
