It was the first weekend of the new season in the Great Yarmouth Sunday League.

Champions Windmill took on True Traders, who went ahead through Luke Watson, only for Windmill to strike back soon after.

With only a few minutes left debutant Jake Jessup stepped up to take a free-kick 30 yards out and coolly slotted home to condemn Windmill to their first defeat in over a year.

El Sol claimed a 14-0 win away to Real Ale Madrid while there was a hat-trick for Joel Wilson and a goal for Jamie Shipp against Memphis Belton as Wheelwrights ran out 6-2 winners. Goals for Memphis came from Dale Howe and Marley Symonds.

Matthew Brown scored a last minute equaliser for AC Mill Lane at home to Bohemians in a 1-1 draw. Waveney hit 11 without reply against Hemsby and Hemsby Reserves lost 8-2 at home to The Flying Dutchman. All teams are asked to take their rubbish from the side of the pitch at the end of the game.
