Aston Berry Great Yarmouth Sunday League
El Sol were narrowly defeated in their Senior Cup semi-final as they went down by the only goal at Dog House in extra time. After reaching the final last time, they can be proud of going so close again.
The spotlight now falls on Windmill, who on Sunday will be looking to defeat Globe Bowls Club in their Intermediate Cup semi-final on the Beaco. They go into the match in good form, having opened up a five-point lead at the top of the second division, following their 4-0 win against Hembsy.
Camden Tavern Reserves still occupy bottom place, but have picked up recenly and this week held Belton United to a thrilling 3-3 draw.
The points were also shared at Mill Lane as Gorleston Albion and Rollesby drew 2-2, whilst 60-year-old Geoff Mingay was the hero for Caesar's Bar. He scored a top-corner corker to help his side pick up the three points in their 3-2 win against Acle Wanderers.
