Halls Group Great Yarmouth Sunday League

The Sunday League returned to action with a limited programme due to pitch unavailability and the main talking points were in the County Cup semi-finals.

In the Norfolk Senior Cup it's a case of one in, one out and two to try again.

Archers are the team through to the last four as they comfortably defeated Norwich Busmen. They are paired with Norwich side Marlborough in the semi-finals as Marlbrough put out Lacon Arms 7-1.

Camden Tavern will be forced to replay this week following their 1-1 draw against Norman Wanderers, whilst Quebec and El Sol will try again as the original tie was postponed due to frost.

The winners of the last two games will meet in the second semi-final on February 1.

In the Junior Cup, Windmill must be strongly fancied as they remain the only league side left after crushing Hearsease 7-1. They will play AFC Rompers, who defeated Cantley Rovers 2-1, whilst Hembsy FC bowed out 4-2 against Upton FC. The semi-final will be on February 22.

There were three league matches played by clubs who have their own pitch. In the first division Sunningdale Boys scored the only goal in their match against Gorleston Albion, whilst Norton Athletic move to the top of the first division following their 3-1 success against Hembsy SSC.

There are also new leaders of the third division as Belton FC took advantage of Windmill's cup action to move three points clear as they ran out 5-2 winners against Greengate.

This week we should see most teams in action. Any problems, ring Scott Yarham 07901 825648.
