Great Yarmouth & District Football League

In the league's premier cup competition - the Wiltshire Cup - Bohemians, top of Division Two, held the champions and holders Catfield until 90 seconds from the final whistle.

In a superb match that looked certain for extra-time the Cats' Adam Hodds popped up to put Catfield into the quarter-finals and break Bohemians' hearts.

Bohemians were superb. But for some fine goalkeeping by first Molloy and then his replacement Moore between the sticks Bohemians would have taken something from the tie. However, Catfield punished them in the closing stages and set up an away tie at either Lacon Arms or Caister United A.

Feathers took the lead three times against Prostar Windows, who fought back each time. In the shoot-out, Feathers' keeper Jordan Lowe saved a spot-kick to set Feathers up with an away tie with Albion.

Albion eased through 5-1 against Tramway. MK United are also through after beating a stubborn GY Peelers 3-0. The teams meet again in the league this week.

Martham A beat Carpathians 4-2 and GY United of Division Two knocked out first division GY International 4-1 to play at Reedham on January 2. Two ties were postponed until that date.

In the one league game that was played, Norfolk and Chance missed the chance to close the gap in Division Two as they drew 3-3 at South Yarmouth, which leaves Bohemians three points clear at the top.
