Ten-goal thriller in Primary Cup

Corpusty and Saxthorpe 6, Wensum Albion 4: Albion travelled to Corpusty looking to make it into the third round of the Primary Cup for the first time in many years.

The away side made the best possible start when within the first minute, Pete Gorbould squared the ball to Andrew Jenkins who side-footed home from close range.

Against the wind Albion struggled to take advantage of their early goal and found themselves pegged back for the latter parts of the half.

Corpusty were awarded a penalty before the break as Albion keeper Chard was adjudged to have fouled their striker in the box. The resultant penalty was tucked away as the sides came in all square.

The match came to life in the second half as within the space of minutes Corpusty had made it 3-1 with carbon copy goals, their left winger crossing from the flank, the ball looping over the keeper into the net.
