The wintry weather played havoc with Norfolk & Suffolk Youth League for the second weekend running, with over 100 league and cup fixtures being postponed.
However, some players knew how to keep themselves warm - by scoring goals - and Jack and Oscar did just that for Corton Owls who are playing their first season in the league.
Corton joined this year with two teams and everyone at the league wishes them well for what will hopefully the first of many seasons.
Alfie kept warm for Ormesby Lads with his goal and no doubt the Kirkley & Pakefield parents kept their hands warm by applauding Cody’s goal for the Kings.
There were goals galore in the Under 14 Division One match as goals from Harry, two from Adam and, three from Jenson gave the Jaguars of Waveney plenty to cheer about. There was also a hat-trick from James for the Kestrels as they lost 10-3.
The Panthers of Kirkley & Pakefield returned the short distance home with three points in Under 14 Division One after a seven-goal victory at the Meerkats of Waveney.
Only one match survived in the Under 16 cup and through to the next round are the Tigers of Waveney after their 11-0 defeat of the Bees of Beccles Town.
