Butcher targets a promotion hat-trick
The One to Watch this week focuses on the top two in Evening News Copy IT Norwich Sunday League Division 1B where St Faiths take on Sprowston Rovers, the side that knocked them off the top spot last weekend.
With his side inactive, St Faiths manager Martin Butcher watched part of his rivals’ 5-1 win over Earlham Utd and rates them as a young fit side.
“It should be a good game” said Butcher, who says he has his sights on a third successive promotion.
“We made a slow start but are now finding our feet at this higher level.
“The squad gets stronger every season and it would be unfair to single out any individual, but the players have a first-class attitude and I am very pleased with how the season is going.

“It’s not an unrealistic aim to target another promotion and we are also making good progress in the Sunday Senior Cup.”
League leaders Sprowston Rovers are looking forward to the game and secretary Mark Casey says that although he thinks the side are punching above their weight, he would be quite happy if they could stay there.
