King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: No shocks as League Cup takes centre stage
Teams from both divisions came together in a King's Lynn Sunday League knockout cup at the weekend.
The League Cup took centre stage and there are now definitely six Division Two teams through to the second round, with one definitely set to appear in the third.
There were two ties on Sunday featuring Division One teams against lower-level outfits and both went to form. England's Hope hammered West Lynn 7-1, despite Ant Munson's strike. Ricky Gunns (3), Matt Dawson (2), Sam Whyborn and Dean Jimson bagged for the visitors.
FANG travelled to Adrian Flux and bettered Hope by winning 8-1. Kyle Benefer scored for Flux but FANG romped home courtesy of Jo Malby (4), Corey Brady (2), Lewis Osborn and Tommy Rix.
Clenchwarton and Flitcham battled out a true ding-dong cup affair, with Clenchwarton racing into a 4-0 half-time lead through Billy Pawsey, Josh Winner, C Scamell and Adam Mason. Bell rallied in the 2nd half and despite scoring through Matt Bulley, Richard Cunliffe and Aaron Herbert, could not find an equaliser.
