Peelers make light work of Primary Cup clash

Pub on the Shrubs Yarmouth Saturday League

Last Saturday saw eight sides looking to progress to round three of the Norfolk Primary Cup and four of htem made it through to Monday’s draw. One of them will be Yarmouth Peelers who took on last season’s Central and South Norfolk Division Four champions Litcham at Lynn Grove.

However it was a one-sided affair as the home side eased though with a 6-1 which included braces for Goreham, Hall and Prescott. Another side into round three is Caister United A who made the last 16 last season. They defeated another Central and South Norfolk side in Walsingham United at Allendale. Hopefully they can equal at least last seasons achievements in this competition. Meanwhile Prostar Windows defeated a spirited NUCA at Mill Lane with a convincing 9-0 victory. The last side in the draw though will have to earn that right as MK Shrubs Reserves had there postponed Friday night by the FA Due to irregularities on the opponents behalf. It will likely mean a trip to Blakeney for MK Shrubs this Saturday. The competition did lose Wanderers though as they bravely went down 7-2 at Mulbarton Wanderers Reserves. This will leave Wanderers to focus on domestic competitions. Grosvenor Casino meanwhile travelled with a vastly depleted squad to Kings Lynn and they as expected went out. Caister Roma Reserves had a home tie with One Love United and they faced a difficult tie and so it proved as they lost 6-1. There was one game in division two and it was Filby who comfortably took the points at Martham A winning 13-0. On to the league cup group stage and Haven Bridge United kicked off there campaign with a resounding 7-1 win at Yarmouth International with included a hat-trick for Mickey Vincent. With Haven Bridge in cup action this allowed Catfield the chance to go top in division one and they duly did by beating a hard working Albion 3-0 on Mill Lane with Adam Hodds getting a brace and a Chad Pillar strike. MK Shrubs bounced back after a couple defeats with a hard working 4-2 win against an ever improving South Yarmouth side.

Finally Caister Roma earned three points with a 6-1 win at New Road against Bohemians. With the league cup now starting in both divisions clubs are reminded that cup-tied rules still apply and also players can not drop down to play in the Burgess Cup if they have already played in the HA Holmes Cup - Ryan Starkey.
