Sunday league’s county cup hopes take a blow

Aston Shaw Great Yarmouth Sunday League

After the dreadful weather of recent weeks there was a return to action with teams playing in all manner of competitions.

In the county cups, Rollesby’s tie at North Walsham was the one game that didn’t go ahead and the teams will try again this week.

The Norfolk Intermediate Cup will not be heading to Yarmouth this season as the league’s final three representatives were all knocked out.

Martham slipped to a 4-2 defeat at Norwich side DCS Rapid in their third round replay whilst in the fourth round Venture Albion found Acle Rangers Reserves too strong as they lost 7-2.

In a tighter affair Great Yarmouth White Sox succumbed to an extra-time goal in their tie with Heartsease as they lost 4-3.

In the divisional cups, three of the semi-finalists are known in the first division as Camden Tavern cruised to a 8-0 win at Memphis Belton whilst Great Yarmouth Sunday beat Star and Garter 5-2.
