Yarmouth Town 1, Acle 2

Acle United produced a shock in the fourth round Norfolk Senior Cup, knocking out Ridgeons League Yarmouth Town at The Wellesley.

Two Ben Morgan penalties - the second coming in the dying moments of extra-time - proved to be enough for the Anglian Combination Premier Division outfit, who had gone behind to a Dominic Smith strike just after the interval.

Morgan's first penalty made it 1-1 on 70 minutes before a handball in the Bloaters' box in extra-time allowed Morgan to step up and put Acle through in the final seconds.
