Promotion boost for Yarmouth Peelers
Pub on the Shrubs Yarmouth & District League
A big congratulations goes to Mike Hurren, Darren Reade and all at Yarmouth Peelers following their 3-0 win at Martham A.
The club are guaranteed at least the runners-up medals and a top two Division Two finish.
This was because Caister FC A drew their local derby with Caister Roma Reserves on the Beaconsfield 2-2 ending their chances of a treble. Peelers’ league season is now over and the equation is simple for Wanderers who have to win there last three matches to win the title on goal difference. Anything less sees the the title go to Peelers.
Peelers will be looking to book a place in the Percy Nockolds trophy final with a semi- final tomorrow against last week’s opponents at Lynn Grove. Caister FC A though can make up for their dissapointment tonight at the Wellesley when they face MK Shrubs Reserves in the Burgess Cup final (ko 7.30).
MK Shrubs Reserves warmed up for the final with a 2-1 win at home to Filby and Runham who were unlucky not to take a point.
A good match took place at Lynn Grove as Prostar kept up their hopes of the runners-up spot with a 3-2 win over Grosvenor Casino.

In Division One, Haven Bridge, looking for a maiden league title, took on Wiltshire Cup winners Caister Roma at Allendale.
The visitors put on a commanding first half show on a bumpy pitch to lead 3-0 which included a Bollington penalty save. On the stroke of half time Caister scored from the spot themselves.
In the second half Anderson increased the visitors lead to four but Caister responded with two more to see a nervy finish but Haven held on to win 4-3. A good-spirited match was played at new road between Bohemians and South Yarmouth both scrapping for points.
It finished 3-3 in a game well refereed by Brian Russell.
Catfield have booked a place in next Friday’s league cup final with a walkover win against Albion, who could not raise a side. Catfield will face Haven Bridge in the final at the Wellesley.
The final should be a classic with two really good sides going head to head.
