April 23rd


Congratulations go to Riverside Rovers who retained the Premier Division trophy after getting the point required against Dilham Cross Keys. Dilham had started the game well and had a goal disallowed before Jordan Rocastle put the home side ahead before half time from close range. That’s how it stayed until the hour mark when Connor Delaney scored with a fine finish and the Roy Bevis added a third. With the visitors then being reduced to ten men, two goals i9n a minute saw Bevis collect his hat trick and Delaney add another, before Jason Armes wrapped up the scoring in injury time. In the other game played, well done to Poringland Wanderers who left it until the second last game of the season to record their first win, 2-1 over Farmhouse. Will harrowing had put the home side in front, but Farmhouse levelled with a cracking effort, but with five minutes left, Jonny Causton headed home from a free kick to nab the points.

Well done to Trimingham Pilgrims who secured a place in the Premier Division for the first time as they beat 1A runners up Brooke FC 4-1 in the Play off Final. There will be more news when received.

In 1B, Ryan Tebble and Sam Browne were the scorers for Salhouse Rovers as they came from behind to win 2-1 at Hethersett Athletic, whilst in an important game in 2B, North Walsham leapfrogged Hellesdon into second spot with a single Aaron Hyland goal. Walsham now lead Hellesdon by a point with three games to play, whilst Hellesdon have one left in the battle for runners up.

Well done to Drayton Dazzlers who clinched the runners up spot in 3A after scoring eight (Danny Shafiyan 4, Owen Spooner 2, Mark Cornfield, Ben Hughes) without reply at Longdale Rovers Res. Its capped a good first season for Dazzlers who also won the Sunday Junior Cup. Cotman United and Hempnall completed their seasons by sharing the points and eight goals.
