Great Yarmouth Saturday League

The final of this year's Burgess Cup on Wednesday, April 14 will be between Caister United A and Bohemians, following Bohemians' 2-0 win over Prostar Windows.

The first half of the semi-final was a rather cagey affair, with both teams giving nothing away and the tackles coming in hard.

However the breakthrough came early in the second half, when a cross from wide left by Paul Wilson ended up floating into the far corner to give Bohemians a rather fortunate lead.

The goal livened up the game, with Prostar bringing on legendary striker, Sean Thompson, in an attempt to get back in the game.

Both teams probed for the next goal, but it was Bohemians who got it when a corner floated in and the striker headed home to book Bohemians' place in the final.

Although Bohemians have played better than this at times this season, they did enough on the day to secure their place in the final at the Wellesley with an improved Caister United A and remain on course for a potential treble.

Caister, after some impressive results of late, could only pick up a point in their Division Two clash, as they drew 1-1 with a good GY United side. Norfolk and Chance closed the gap in Division Two to three points as they won 3-2 at a gallant Martham A.

Both Norfolk and Chance and Bohemians have played the same number of games and have four left to play.

South Yarmouth picked up three points as they defeated MK United Reserves 3-2 at Halvergate, while Feathers kept up their promotion charge in third place with a 3-0 win over a Gorleston Wanderers side who had won their last three on the bounce.

In Division One, MK United picked up three points without kicking a ball, as their opponents could not field a side and forfeited the game. Shrublands, who have had a very good first season in Division One, won a classic seven-goal thriller 4-3 against GY International.

Albion travelled to Lynn Grove to play Yarmouth Peelers and were lucky to go in at the break 0-0, as the home side, battling relegation, missed a penalty.

However, the Wiltshire Cup finalists picked up three points with two unanswered second-half goals.

In the HA Holmes League Cup, Catfield set up a mouth-watering semi-final against MK United at Mill Lane on April 10 with a comfortable 4-1 win over Reedham.

The first semi-final of the League Cup takes place this Saturday, as Albion FC look to add a League Cup final to their Wiltshire Cup final with a home semi-final against Lacon Arms on the Beaconsfield for a place at the Wellesley on April 21.
