Great Yarmouth and District Football League
Norfolk Primary Cup first round action was the main focus for the second division clubs.
Norfolk and Chance played against the Lowestoft second division leaders Ellingham with only 10 men and found themselves 2-0 down after half an hour. However, Chance fought back to lead 3-2, but can thank Ben Smethurst in goal for some top-drawer saves on at least five occasions. However, Ellingham struck at the death to take it to extra time and the 10 men of Chance could not hold on, losing 5-3.
Bohemians produced a fine display to see off Bradenham Wanderers 5-0, with a hat-trick for Matthew Bowles. Feathers on the Mag bowed out 2-0 against Dyers Arms, while at Ormesby Carpathians lost by the odd goal of seven against Splitz.
MK United Reserves produced a fine display at Pentney with a 5-0 win, with four for Ian Barnes. South Yarmouth won 3-0 at Burnham Market, and Prostar Windows took Methwold to a replay, which will take place on Saturday at Halvergate.
Gorleston Wanderers lost 3-1 at Walsingham, while Caister A bowed out 3-2 at home to Hethersett. Paperclip lost 2-0 at Thurton and Ashby.

Meanwhile Catfield kept their
two-point lead at the top as they beat GY International 6-1, but did lose Darren Lamb to another leg break and the league wishes him a speedy recovery.
