The Aston Shaw Great Yarmouth Sunday League

The third round of the county cups saw mixed fortunes for the league’s teams.

In the Senior Cup there is only one guaranteed team through, however there are still possibilities that Rollesby and Windmill could join them.

El Sol are the team definitely through after their fine 4-1 win at Quebec Rovers.

Rollesby looked set to join them as they were cruising to a 5-1 win at North Walsham Town when the game was abandoned in the 69th minute. It looks like Norfolk FA will order the game to be replayed.

Windmill forced a replay as they held last year’s winners AFC Wanderers to a 2-2 draw despite playing for around 50 minutes with 10 men.

The league lost two sides as Camden Tavern lost to the only goal at Dog House and Great Yarmouth Town lost 3-1 at Poringland Wanderers.

In the Intermediate Cup, Yarmouth White Sox and Venture Albion keptthe flag flying for the league with comfortable victories.

White Sox returned from Rib Rovers with a 5-0 success whilst Venture disposed of AFC Oak 3-0.

Martham will get to try again as they were held to a 1-1 draw by DCS Rapid whilst Gorleston Rangers were dumped out, losing 6-2 to Moles Rest.

In the first division there were victories for Acle Wanderers and Hembsy, who both recorded 3-1 wins, against Gorleston Albion and Star and Garter respectively.

Bohemians racked up a 9-0 victory against Carpathians in the second division whilst Gorleston Albion Reserves edged a 3-2 win against Lichfield Arms. Sun FC beat Mariners Compass 6-2.
