LODDON GRASSHOPPERS U16 have reached the final of the John Savage County Cup.

The boys ,who all attend the Hobart High School, survived a difficult run up to the semi-final including three away fixtures to teams in the King's Lynn area, but eventually they received a home fixture in the semis against Thorpe Rovers. Loddon went ahead early in the first half and half time saw the boys going in with a 3-1 lead.

Both teams came out fighting in the second half with Thorpe scoring their second goal.

The Loddon team spirit came to the front and the spectators were privileged to see some superb football from the Loddon boys who kept their discipline throughout, Thorpe receiving six yellow cards and being forced to watch Loddon go close twice.

WASPS U12A put in a great performance against Hempnall despite missing two key players. Callum, Will, Steven and Cieran were outstanding in midfield. Regin and Olly never stopped chasing whilst the defence fully deserved another clean sheet. The match was settled just before half-time when George ran onto a fine ball from Olly and rounded the keeper before slotting home. Wasps dominated the match to win 1-0.
