Sunday side cracks 22 goals
Aston Berry Great Yarmouth Sunday Football League
The league’s main cup competitions took centre stage this week with the Knock-Out Cup at the quarter-finals stage and the Plate seeing the first round of games as the teams whittle down to eight.
Starting in the KO Cup, holders Windmill faced El Sol in the tie of the round, and the game lived up to its billing as Windmill won through 4-2.
They will be joined in the semi-finals by Camden Tavern who went nap at second division Martham, cruising to a 5-0 win.
Rollesby’s fine season continued as they also reached the last four after defeating Sun FC 6-0. Making up the quartet are Acle Wanderers who recorded a fine 3-1 win at Gorleston Albion.
In the Plate, Yarmouth White Sox hit the goal trail, running out 22-2 winners at Mariners Compass.
Great Yarmouth Sunday, who many consider favourites for the competition, had to work hard for their quarter-final place, eventually running out 4-2 winners over Camden Tavern Reserves.
