Halls Group Gt Yarmouth Sunday League

THE Norfolk Sunday Senior Cup final ended in bitter disappointment for El Sol as they were soundly beaten 5-1 by Marlborough at Carrow Road.

The finalists of the Division Three Cup will be Hembsy FC and Windmill FC after both comfortably won their semi-final ties. Hembsy won through 7-1 against Venture Albion whilst Windmill defeated Sun FC 6-0. The final will be played on April 19.

The first division title looks to be heading to Camden Tavern despite them not playing at the weekend, as their nearest rivals both dropped points.

Archers take over at the top by a point as they were held to a 3-3 draw at Hembsy whilst Norton Athletic lost 2-1 at home to Sunningdale Boys.

So Archers have 24 points, with Camden and Norton on 23 but Archers only have one game remaining, Camden three and two for Norton.

The second division saw Newtown Golfers move closer to the perfect record as they defeated Memphis Belton 6-2. This was also the scoreline that Nothing Special won by in their match with King's Arms Crusaders, but it will be King's Arms and Belton to face relegation.

In Division Three, Belton FC ran out 4-1 winners over Crown Stores a result that puts them top of the pile by a single point. However, Windmill have four games in hand.

This week sees the first finals taking place, both at Emerald Park, Gorleston.

In the Division Two Cup Acle Wanderers take on Newtown Golfers at 11am this is followed at 1.30pm by the KO Plate final between Camden Tavern Reserves and Kings Arms Crusaders. Admission is £3/£1.50.
