Eight on target for Albion in cup

Great Yarmouth And District Football League

DIVISIONAL league cups again took centre stage and moved closer to the semi-finals stages.

In the HA Holmes League Cup, in group one, Albion got off the mark with three points with a resounding 14-0 win over Caister United A. Albion had eight different scorers as they collected the points.

MK United, meanwhile, bounced back from the previus week to win 4-2 at Yarmouth United. The result means that only an Albion win against Catfield in three weeks’ time can prevent MK going through.

In group two, GY International have all but booked a place in the semi-finals with a 6-0 win at Feathers. This result means only a heavy defeat in their last game will see them go out.

In the Burgess Cup for Division Two clubs, in group one Belton moved closer to the semi-finals with a 3-1 win over Carpathians. The home side have been impressive of late and are still in contention for four trophies, including the Norfolk Primary Cup.

Arches, meanwhile, also collected three priceless points as they defeated Caister CC 2-1. Caister CC, the leaders of Division Two, could be in danger of going out as they face Belton this week knowing they cannot really afford a defeat.
