Falcons slam eight goals to sting Beccles’ Wasps

PUBLISHED: 17:34 14 February 2017 | UPDATED: 17:34 14 February 2017

With only three matches surviving both the half-term break and the very cold weather, all the Norfolk and Suffolk Youth League

teams who won moved up to fourth position in their respective leagues.

Starting in under 13 Division One, Worstead Wolves made the trip to Gorleston FC and a 6-2 away win moved them up to fourth position, and despite being 10 points behind the table-toppers, they do have four games in hand, but these have to be fitted and won, so time will tell.

The Hurricanes of Gorleston FC returned to league action at the weekend and their 11-0 defeat of Bungay Town moves them up to fourth position in under 15 Division One. Again the Hurricanes are nine points behind the current leaders but they also have four games in hand, which all have to be fitted in and in might be a case of too many games in too short a time. But the Hurricanes have a strong squad and again, only time will tell.

The third and final match played on Sunday not only had 11 goals to enjoy, with Harry, Julien and Calum on target for the Wasps of Beccles Town, but the eight goals the Falcons netted in reply saw them not only take all three points but also move up into fourth position in under 12 Division Two. Again they have games in hand, two of them, and they are four points behind, so they have not got so many games to fit in but they all have to be played and the league is running out of Sundays.

Congratulations go to the six teams who did get a match played. There were others scheduled, but they fell victim to the bad weather conditions.

There is lots of cup action this weekend. Gorleston Rangers will try again to get their County Cup semi-final with Attleborough played and on the league front there will be semi-finals at under 16, under 15, under 14, under 13, plus under 10 and under 9 levels, so plenty of cup final places up for grabs.

In the Great Yarmouth Sunday League there was only one game played in Division One. Windmill kept up their 100 per cent league campaign by winning 11-0 against Acle Wanderers. The only game in Division Two saw Hemsby beat Memphis Belton 16-3 with Sean Perfect scoring eight and James Hunt grabbing a hat-trick.
