Aston Berry Yarmouth Sunday League: This season's Knockout Cup final will be an all Second Division affair, as both Windmill and Gorleston Albion won through their semi-finals ties. Windmill defeated fellow Second Division side Caesars Bar 5-1, whilst Gorleston Albion again knocked out First Division opposition as they defeated Arches 3-1. The final will be on Thursday, April 29 at the Wellesley Stadium.
In the First Division League Cup semi-final, Camden Tavern whacked a sorry Norton Athletic 12-1 to book their final place against El Sol (April 25), whilst for Norton it looks to be the end of the road for them as a team following a season of struggle.
The good times look set to return for Rollesby, who reached the Second Division League Cup final following their 4-1 win against Camden Tavern Reserves and they will square off against either Windmill or Belton United, who play this week.
On to league affairs, and El Sol kept their slim title hopes alive following their 3-1 win against Newtown Golfers. Sol can only draw level on points with Camden, so Camden need to eke a point from this week's clash at Hembsy to put it to bed, whilst for Golfers, their current second place is the best they can now hope for, but with a game in hand, Sol have to be favourites for the runners-up berth.
In the Second Division, the Acle v Hemsby derby ended in Hemsby's favour 5-2, but both sides will finish mid-table.
The Third Division is still no nearer a conclusion. However Star & Garter racked up their 10th straight win to stay within a point of Memphis Belton, who have played three games more. Star defeated Venture Albion 7-1, whilst Belton beat Carpathians 4-1. Rumbold Arms remain unbeaten, but saw their hopes diminish, as they were held 2-2 by Mariners Compass.
