Norwich City Girls U12 had a quick return match with North Walsham, this time in the league.

They carried on from where they left off in the cup match by pushing forward from the kick-off and winning an early corner.

After several missed chances the North Walsham keeper’s clearance fell to Beth whose excellent lob opened the scoring.

Good passing between Beth, Rachel and Shana led to Cerys shooting wide from distance.

Emily then had a couple of chances but both went wide. Beth then had another chance but put it wide when through with just the keeper to beat. Emily took a corner which was forced in by Shana at the near post to make it 2-0. Then just before half-time from an Emily throw the North Walsham keeper fumbled the ball into her own net to make it 3-0 at the break.

Cerys and Emily both had shots saved by the North Walsham keeper early in the second half.

Emily was denied by the post, but Shana reacted the quickest to score from the rebound. Norwich continued to play well as a team. Emily was again unlucky with another shot that hit a post.

Norwich City Girls U10 made a promising start to their cup game against Thorpe United with a good run and passing move to win an early corner.

Thorpe keeper’s poor goal-kick resulted in Nicole taking advantage to score.

Norwich continued to press forward, forcing Thorpe’s keeper to make several good saves as Norwich created plenty of chances.

Eventually Robyn burst through to find the back of the net to make it 2-0 at half-time.

The second half carried on in the same vein but chances were not taken.

Thorpe United seemed to get into their stride and began to pass the ball well and started to threaten, but Abi and Jorja in defence held firm. Norwich finished the game as they started but were unable to add to their total.

Full time 2-0.
