Wednesday end of season report
- Credit: Archant
Winners – Ajax Treesdown: The ‘Journeymen’ of Goals Norwich have been victorious in the Thursday Night League, The Monday seven-a-side league, and now the Wednesday Night League. Their amazing run of league victories was wrapped up on the final day of the season on the Wembley pitch, a win seeing them pip Courtesy to the title after a hard battle. They won eight of their 10 matches, with both defeats at the hands Courtesy, they won by two points on a nail-biting final day. The lowest scorers in the top three with just 70 goals in total, it was their defence that saw them home with the meanest in the league. They are taking a break over Christmas and returning to Thursday Nights in January and we wish them all the best in their next adventure.
Runners Up – Courtesy: With the league season coming down to the final game, Courtesy knew that if they won then they won the league. It was sadly not to be as Vinegar 5’s spoilt the party by defeating them 8-7. Another strong season for John Miller and his side which has seen the title slip away in the final weeks for the second season in a row. The top scorers in the league with the second best defence, hopefully they can go one better next time out.
Winners – Kronenberg Crushers: Our resident ‘Muscle Men’ have had a season to remember as they defeated all comers to end the year with a 100% record. This continues the remarkable turnaround in fortunes after their first season, and they have now completed their march in to the Premiership. The confidence is high in this team with 116 goals scored and only 39 conceded, and they look forward to life in the Premiership with the feeling that they can go all the way.

Winners – Hung FC: The tightest division in the Wednesday league came down to the final match with Hung FC needing to win to take the title on goal difference. Their 135 goals scored over the season in just 10 games has seen them take top spot by nearly 40 goals. The move in to the Championship should not fill them with fear as they have improved so much from when they first started at Goals, becoming one of the top teams in Norwich.
Runners Up - The Mighty Ducks: With eight wins and two defeats, many would expect to win the league with these statistics but they fell short on goal difference to Hung. Scoring over 100 goals was an excellent return for this team but it was only good enough for second place. The team are taking Christmas off and returning for the seven-a-side league in January, and we wish them every success in this.
• League Two
Winners – Real Moatdrid: Not content with winning every game, they also very nearly became the first team to score over 200 goals in a 10 game season. This team have a goal difference of 136, having scored 182 goalstin the league and only conceding 46. This record is so impressive that they have been jumped straight up to the Premier League where they rightfully belong. Having had ywo seasons here and being very impressive in both, they now move in to the Premiership and can be positive that they can do well in this division too.
Runners Up – Rose Lane Rangers: Despite a difficult season last time out, Rose Lane have improved and won the battle to finish second on the final night by defeating their rivals LSU FC 11-10 with a last minute goal. This sees them move up a division with renewed confidence and positivity for the next campaign. Six wins and four defeats was enough to see them take the runners up spot, despite finishing with -2 goal difference!
• League Three
Winners – The Good, The Bad & The Watts: A fantastic run of results sees this team of youngsters take top spot on the final night of the season following their win over Mclovin FC. The win sees them break the 100 goal barrier and also sees them rightly promoted following some excellent performances. The quiet boys of Goals Norwich are starting to make some noise with their football skills!
Runners Up – Jermain Men: Feeling a little hard done by that they came to the season late, Paul and his men have played some excellent football and can count themselves unlucky to only finish second. They have seven wins from their nine games played and scored 94 goals in the process. They wrapped up their campaign with two wins on the final night, but unable to match the Champions tally of 22 points. Now they have something to prove next season!
