Strikers give defences a torrid time in Junior Cup matches

JUNIOR CUP: The second round of the Norfolk Junior Cup saw 160 goals across the 32 matches, with only 11 teams failing to find the net.

Linnets’ manager Jonathan Hawes said: “It was a strong and physical side that we were up against and I’m so proud of our lads. They rose above the physicality of their opponents and through their flowing football they played Catfield off the park.”

The Lynn outfit have now scored three away from home in the last two rounds, and when asked if an away tie would be preferred in round three, Hawes replied: “We have no problem scoring away from home, but of course we would love to play at The Walks in the next round.”

Elsewhere, Coltishall were again high scorers as they continued their good form in the competition with a 7-4 win at Hindringham Reserves while Dereham Town Reserves and Blofield United Reserves both had comfortable 8-1 away wins at Tacolneston and Great Yarmouth United respectively.

Norwich & District Business Houses League champions Yelverton overcame Anglian Combination Division Two opposition, as they were 2-0 winners at Wortwell, and Holt United and South Walsham played out a goalless draw, meaning they will replay at South Walsham next Saturday.
