Holt reached the final of the Norfolk Junior Cup for the second year running when they repeated last season's victory at Swaffham to set up a clash at Thetford.

The hosts started brightly and took the lead with a penalty but Holt replied after 15 minutes, Rumsby finishing off a move to give his side the lead. The visitors went further ahead when Brown finished off another good move.

A Brown penalty stretched Holt's lead soon after the break and some good passing ended with Walton scoring a try, which Brown converted. Three minutes later Brown was again on target with a penalty, giving his side a healthy lead of 20 points.
