League takes a back seat as cup competitions kick off

Most of the league programme was taken up with the start of the divisional league cups.

In the Smallburgh Crown Division One League Cup, Runton entertained North Walsham ‘A’ and following a 4-2 victory booked themselves an away trip to Gimingham in the second round, whom for their part saw off Hickling at home by a 7-0 margin.

Ludham inflicted the first domestic defeat of the season on East Ruston when they beat their hosts 3-1 to set up an away trip to North Walsham Old Boys.

Briston received a walk over as Horning could not raise a side and their reward for this is a home tie against Corpusty, whilst Coltishall will host Aldborough Lions to complete the second round ties.

In the Rivett Motors Division Two Cup, Mundesley’s resounding 6-0 thumping of Corpusty Reserves sees them entertain Worstead in the next round.

Holt ‘A’ and Cromer Youth Old Boys ended goalless but it was Holt who went through after a penalty shootout to set up a visit to Felmingham.

Haisboro Athletics’ reward for seeing off Buxton Reserves is a trip to Lyng with Erpingham having home advantage over Aylsham ‘A’ in the final tie.
