Catfield, of the Great Yarmouth & District Football League, are just 90 minutes away from Carrow Road after a hard-working 2-1 semi-final win over a very good Downham Town Reserves in the Norfolk Junior Cup.

Goals from Pillar and Thompson put the Cats on their way. Downham pulled one back and a fantastic double save from Molloy denied them an equaliser in stoppage time.

The Burgess Cup was also at its quarter-finals stage. GY United progressed into the semi-finals with a resounding 12-0 win at Martham A which included five goals for Gino Hynes. They have a home semi-final with Caister United A.
