Albion (GY) started 2009 where they left off in 2008 - winning.

Albion visited South Yarmouth in the fourth round of the Norfolk Primary Cup and were three up through Mat Oldham, James Hogbin and Aaron Drewery before Nathan Copping pulled one back for South Yarmouth before the break.

Ten minutes into the second period Darren How reduced the arrears further before Hogbin was sent off for a second yellow card.

A tense final half an hour was eased when substitute and leading scorer Johnny Bowles restored the two-goal advantage as Albion saw out the game to win 4-2.

Great Yarmouth Peelers travelled to Watton United and lost 3-2.

With Albion on cup duty, Shrublands once again missed the chance to go top of the second division as they lost 6-1 at home to Hemsby Reserves, who move into second spot.

Hemsby's goals came from Dale Bain (2), Terry McGough (2), Cain Esherwood and Jacob Roberts.

MK United Reserves are third following a 4-0 win at Martham A with goals from Brandon Ingram, Robbie Halfnight, Adam Secker and Jack Stewart.

A goalless draw for Prostar Windows away to Norfolk and Chance move them into fifth, eight points behind Shrublands.

Jason Rowe and Lee Jones netted twice each along with Colin Walker, Chris Wilkes and an own goal as Gorleston Wanderers won 7-1 at Great Yarmouth United.

The top four all won in Division One with leaders Catfield 5-0 winners at Tramways thanks to goals from Aaron Bowers (2), Adam Thompson (2) and Paul Thompson while second-placed MK United beat Lacon Arms 6-2 with a hat trick from Adam Hogg, a double from Tom Norman and one from Coe.

Arches defeated bottom club Caister A 8-0 with doubles from Steve Calver and Dean Harper as well as Dean Crosby, Sean Crosby, Craig Cutajar and Ben Gleason being on target.

Reedham completed the double over Golfers Arms with a narrow 2-1 win courtesy of a Ross Charlton brace.

The fifth and sixth-placed sides Gunton and Great Yarmouth International shared the points in a 1-1 draw with Tarren Hunter netting for Gunton.
