Just what the doctor ordered as Medics nick it

BUSINESS HOUSE LEAGUE: The weekend saw the quarter-finals of the Shoe Trades Cup which is one of Norfolk's longest running cup competitions, running since 1926. Current holders and newly-crowned league champions Yelverton came out 2-0 winners away to a Salhouse side who dominated the first half and were unlucky to go behind just before the break after Tom Hall scored for the holders, Lee Green scoring the second.

Norwich Medics were another of the sides that had to fight hard to overcome Division One's Costessey Crown at Hewett School.

Crown were in the lead and coasting but an injury put them down to 10 men to allow the Medics to nick it at the death.
