The semi-finalists of the two divisional cups were decided on Saturday with the top three of the first division
through to the last four of the HA Holmes Cup along with Golfers Arms.
Goals from Ollie McCarthy (2), Chris King and G Ford squeezed Golfers Arms past Gunton 4-3 and a semi-final against Catfield, who defeated Great Yarmouth International 5-1 with a double from Chad Pillar and a goal each from Adam Thompson, Aaron Bowers and Karl Barnard.
Two goals from Steve Calver and one from Ben Kiki helped Arches to a 3-1 win at Lacon Arms and a late goal blitz from MK United reversed a 2-1 deficit at Reedham into a 7-2 win with goals from Thompson (2), AD Hogg (2), AR Hogg, Jackson and Holliman.
The top two in the second division met in the Burgess Cup with Hemsby Reserves taking a fourth-minute lead at Albion (GY) through Wayne Bensley but a first goal of the season from Rhys Butler drew Albion level.
