Sunday league has mixed county cup luck

The Aston Shaw Great Yarmouth Sunday League

The third round of the county cups saw mixed fortunes for the league’s teams.

In the Senior Cup there is only one guaranteed team through, however there are still possibilities that Rollesby and Windmill could join them.

El Sol are the team definitely through after their fine 4-1 win at Quebec Rovers.

Rollesby looked set to join them as they were cruising to a 5-1 win at North Walsham Town when the game was abandoned in the 69th minute. It looks like Norfolk FA will order the game to be replayed.

Windmill forced a replay as they held last year’s winners AFC Wanderers to a 2-2 draw despite playing for around 50 minutes with 10 men.

The league lost two sides as Camden Tavern lost to the only goal at Dog House and Great Yarmouth Town lost 3-1 at Poringland Wanderers.
