It’s the Joy of spring as Norman rout Quebec
Ben Casey Quebec Rovers, tipped by many to lift the Premier Division crown, were given a wake-up call as they crashed 5-0 at Norman Wanderers. Gauntlet, Bales and Joy (3), all received late call-ups from the reserves and proved their worth by hitting the target.
Quebec Rovers, tipped by many to lift the Premier Division crown, were given a wake-up call as they crashed 5-0 at Norman Wanderers. Gauntlet, Bales and Joy (3), all received late call-ups from the reserves and proved their worth by hitting the target. Tuttle scored twice for AFC Wanderers as they drew 2-2 at Dog House in a Norfolk Sunday Senior Cup dress rehearsal.
In 1A, North Walsham Town closed the gap at the top to one point as they beat Norwich CEYMS 2-1. Norwich Busmen dropped to third as they were held to a goal less draw at Hainford YCOB. In the bottom-of-the-table clash Rose Valley won 2-1 at Unthank Arms.
Costessey Sports are the new leaders of 2A after a 2-0 victory over Haig FC. Norfolk CCSC beat Drayton 3-2 thanks to goals by Roberts and Woodcock (2), whilst Sprowston Wanderers won 2-0 at Unicorns. Well done to Mattishall YCOB who gained their first win of the season, 5-1 over Prince of Denmark.
Green Man went back to the top of 2A after hitting eight without reply against Coachmakers Arms, whilst Reepham went down 4-2 at Aslacton. Norman Wanderers A made it a good day for the club, winning 3-2 at The Griffen, for whom Whitlam and Odeh were on target, whilst goals by N. Stannard, Ethridge and P. Stannard 2, gave Deopham a 4-3 win at Acle Wanderers for whom Catchpole, Yaxley and Flint replied. The Castlegate and Spixworth Utd shared the points in a 2-2 draw. St Faiths won the big game in 2B, 2-1 against Acle Rangers Res and are now three points clear at the top. Horsford SC and Sprowston Rovers drew 2-2 and The Gordon beat Ribs of Beef 3-2. Sewell, Winter and Barnes scored for the home side with Bennison and Robinson replying. PL Rangers suffered a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Spixworth Sunday, but were full of praise for referee Mark Smythe.
An own goal and Seager hat trick ensured that Stoke FC continue to lead 3A as they won 4-1 at Bystanders. Third placed DCS Rapid became the first side to complete their fixtures for the season as they beat The Otter 2-1 (Weavers and Davis) and The Reindeer were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Sporting Longdale. McGregor, Sears, Woodcock and Bradley were all on target as Heartsease Casuals won 4-1 at Newsman Celtic and I was on hand to see Mad Moose score a dramatic late equaliser as they drew 4-4 with Temple Bar. Bayer FC march on at the top of 3B, winning 7-2 at Aylsham Sunday Res, whilst Sporting Farmhouse scraped past Wilco Fast Fit 3-2. Hethersett Res are fourth after a 5-1 win at Moles Rest and Taverham beat AFC Rompers 2-1. Rompers had levelled the scores deep into injury time but Periera popped up to grab a winner with seconds to go. Unicorns Res had a good 4-2 victory at Dynamo Denmark.
