Gorleston may have finished their league programme but there is a big week coming up for the club.

The scoreless draw at Brantham meant the Greens finished in fourth place in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division, one place lower than last year, although this season they lost fewer games and won one more point.

But the Greens have a chance to put some silverware in the cupboard when they are off to Carrow Road for the Norfolk Senior Cup final, against Wroxham, on Thursday, kick-off 7.30pm.

Meanwhile, on Monday night, there is another important match against Wroxham – this time the respective Under 18s take each other on at Trafford Park in a league game in what is virtually a title decider.

Wroxham are five points ahead of Gorleston so if they avoid defeat they would secure the title. However, if Gorleston win they would then need to beat Harford Youth next Wednesday at Emerald Park to become champions themselves. That game kicks off at 7.45pm.
