Goals flow in Yarmouth league

Great Yarmouth and District Football League

Week two of the league season saw plenty of goals across the full programme.

Leading the way in the scoring charts is Richard Watts of Bohemians, who helped himself to five goals against a youthful Feathers side in a 12-1 win for the home side that also saw Nathan Derry get four.

Bohs end the week top with maximum points.

Another side with maximum points is Catfield. They recorded a 5-0 win against a Norfolk and Chance side who never stopped battling. Catfield face a strong local derby this week, against Gorleston Reserves in the Junior Cup.

MK United got their season started with a 2-0 win at Yarmouth United. The home side never stopped battling and will be encouraged by this performance against a strong MK side.

In the end the experience of the visitors came through. This week they entertain Diss Town Reserves in the Junior Cup at Burgh Castle.
