In the Primary League Cup, Thetford Rovers Reserves made it to the final with a convincing 6-1 home win over West End. However, the other semi-final was much closer with it taking a penalty competition to separate Morley Village and Nostro after a 1-1 draw after extra-time. Morley came out on top, winning the penalty competition 4-2.
The Pease League Cup semi-finals also produced two home winners. Castle Acre Swifts reached their first ever final since joining the league with a 6-1 win over Bawdeswell while Hethersett Athletic beating Sporle 4-0.
