Six of King's Lynn's Division One sides enjoyed a bye into the second round of the Norfolk Senior Cup, leaving just Burt and Chilvers to take on last season's winners and runners-up.

Burt had the near-impossible task of overcoming holders AFC Wanderers. They did manage to trouble the scoresheet twice, through Rowan Smith and Sam Hewitt, but AFC prevailed by notching seven goals of their own. Chilvers took on losing finalists Windmill at River Lane, but with Windmill leading 1-0, the game was abandoned.

In the Intermediate Cup Tilney hosted Briston and won 5-0. The home side could even afford the luxury of five different scorers in the shape of Luke Hurrel, Chris Young, Jordi Scott-Henson, Jason Chilton and Kai Scott-Henson.

Flitcham Bell made the long trip to Dilham Cross Keys. They found themselves 4-0 down at half time and lost 5-1, but restored some pride after the break through Louie Claydon's consolation. CR Eastern made another long trip, this time to Constable Crusaders, and lost 9-2. Shane Grimes and Daniel Kerry netted for CR.

In the Junior Cup the game that saw Horsepigs Reserves, the club run by Josh and Jacob Murphy's father, take on Tasburgh, run by Neil Adams' son, it was the Adams' family that reigned supreme, with a 4-2 victory. Dale Stokes and Sam Barrett scored for 'Pigs.
