Great Yarmouth & District Football League

NOT one of the home sides registered a win last weekend.

Catfield entertained West Lynn SSC in their Norfolk Junior Cup replay for a place at Carrow Road and lost to the only goal of the tie.

The Cats started the brighter with a couple of good runs by Rosati which on one occasion put Pillar one-on-one with the keeper but it came to nothing. Towards the end of the first half Catfield claimed a penalty when Paul Thompson flicked past the last defender and appeared to be taken down when in on goal, but the referee waved away the protests.

In the second half the deciding moment came when George was adjudged by the referee to have pulled the collar of the West Lynn player in the box and the referee gave the decisive penalty.

The Cats had a couple chances towards the end before Pillar was dismissed in stoppage time.
