North Walsham ‘A’ to face East Ruston in League Cup final

North Walsham ‘A’ reached the final of the Smallburgh Crown Division League Cup when they entertained Coltishall.

The sides still could not be separated after extra time as it ended 2-2, but it was the ‘A’s who went on to win 3-2 on penalties and will play East Ruston on Friday, May 18 at 7.30pm at Greens Road, North Walsham.

In the Slater & Frith Division One, Gimingham - having hit the goal trail midweek with a double figure win over Horning - followed that up with an 8-2 trouncing of Lyng, with Wayne Cutting notching five of their goals and further efforts coming from Charlie Skipper, Ryan Beeson and Ali Thurston with Aaeron Moss getting both for the visitors.
