Teams jockeying for Wiltshire Cup glory

Great Yarmouth and District League

It was the turn of the Wiltshire Cup to take centre stage as one first-round replay and six second-round ties were played, pitting first and second division teams together.

In the first round replay at Lynn Grove, Yarmouth Peelers faced off against Yarmouth United. The the visitors went through courtesy of a Chris Gilchrist strike to set up a second-round meeting with Caister A on December 11.

In the second round, the holders Catfield made it through against new youth side Caister Youth. The experience of the holders shone through as they progressed into the quarter-finals.

However, Caister Youth are an excellent addition to the league with their brand of passing football. They will look to bounce back this week with a place up for grabs in the quarter-finals of the Primary Cup when they entertain Diss Town A.

Feathers visited Belton at Burgh Castle and it was the first division side who sneaked through 2-1. Feathers will play either Caister A or Yarmouth United in the quarter-finals.

GY International faced a very tricky tie at Arches on Gorleston Rec. However, International saw off the threat to move forward in the competition with a 4-2 win.
