Great Yarmouth and District Football League

Indiscipline cost Albion (GY) dearly. Trailing to a second-minute goal against visitors Docking Rangers in the semi-finals of Norfolk Primary Cup, they had Peter Oldham dismissed for a second yellow card after just 16 minutes.

Albion always looked as they could get back in the game, but a five-minute spell early in the second half ended those hopes.

After 50 minutes Docking doubled their lead and five minutes later Kristian Gowing became the second Albion player to be shown a red card.

Division One leaders Catfield were made to work for the full 90 minutes before claiming their 2-1 win against Lacon Arms with goals from Chad Pillar and Karl Barnard.

MK United bounced back from last week's reverse to beat Golfers Arms 5-2 with scorers Tom Norman, Dane Whiteley, Dale Ingram, Stu Thompson and an

own goal.

Arches remain third after they also won 5-2, against Gunton, with substitute Daryl Hall netting

twice, Scott and Steve Calver once each with Sean Crosby completing the scoring.

Two goals from Vida Formosa earned Great Yarmouth International a 2-0 win at Reedham. Tramway's mini renaissance came to an end when bottom club Caister A won 2-0 thanks to goals from Sam Pullin and Daniel White in only their second win of the season as they complete the double.

Second division leaders MK United Reserves were made to work hard for the win against South Yarmouth. Brandon Ingram netted along with player-manager Shaun Miller.

Shrublands reclaimed second place thanks to a hat-trick from Jason Thompson in a 3-2 win against Great Yarmouth United.

Martham took the lead at Carpathians through Stephen Emmett but the home side soon equalised when a Steven Ward corner was headed in by centre back David Greasby, his first goal in three years. Martham regained the lead again through ex-Carpathians player Richard Barnes, who netted again with a header from a corner. Carpathians equalised nine minutes from half-time when Adrian Coote scored after a good spell of passing.

A Martham defender unfortunately put through his own goal and Phil Brown made sure of the points when he lobbed the keeper in the final minute to

move Carpathians off the foot of the table.

At Prostar Windows two goals from Scott Foskett and one from Richard Jepps and Thomas Ward earned Norfolk and Chance a 4-2 win. Paperclip followed-up the previous week's 5-2 win with a second win in 2009, Grant Lloyd (2), W Lloyd, M Thompson and P Botten the scorers in a 5-1 win at Gorleston Wanderers.
