WINDMILL produced a stirring comeback to book themselves a place in the final of the First Division League Cup after beating Camden Tavern 3-2.
In a game watched by a crowd of over 200, Camden worked their way into a 2-0 lead. But Windmill, who were probably the better side in possession on the day, fought back to level before finding a winner three minutes from time thanks to Chad Pillar.
Their opponents in the final are still not known as the game between Hemsby and Great Yarmouth Sunday was postponed due to the weather.
The Second Division League Cup final will be between Camden Tavern Reserves and Martham following their semi-final victories.
Martham beat Lichfield Arms by 4-2 despite playing for over an hour with 10 men following the dismissal of their keeper, whilst Camden had a far easier time in defeating Gorleston Albion Reserves 7-0.
At Sunday’s club meeting the draws were made for the next round of the KO Cup and KO Plate. KO Cup semi-finals: Acle Wanderers v Camden Tavern, Windmill v Rollesby; KO Plate quarter-finals: Carpathians v Lichfield Arms, Bohemians v Venture Albion, Memphis Belton v Gt Yarmouth Sunday, Hembsy v Yarmouth White Sox.
