Trimingham Pilgrims visited Horsford and completed their first league double of the season with a convincing 3-0 victory.

They drew first blood when Ollie Bell received the ball on the left of the area from an Adam Johnson throw-in and played it into the path of Ryan Beeson whose stinging shot was parried by the keeper but George Crane followed up to score.

Two minutes before the break Beeson again set up Crane who slotted a low shot into the net.

Manager Antoni Fawkes used his five substitutes in the second half without breaking the rhythm of the play.

Twenty minutes from time Crane intercepted a Horsford goal kick and chipped the ball forward to Beeson and he expertly flicked the ball over a defender’s head, turned and shot into the bottom right corner.

A fine save from Pilgrim’s keeper Leigh Brown in the dying minutes kept a clean sheet for a 3-0 win.

SHERINGHAM U16’s first game in a month was against St Andrews who are in a similar position to them in the league. The game got off to a flowing start with both teams sharing possession and both teams playing football. Will Parker had to go in goal and excelled, pulling of some fine saves to keep St Andrews out. Jacob Knowles was moved up front, with his pace being utilised to keep St Andrews’ defenders on their toes. St Andrews made it 1-0 when they cut in from the right and managed to square the ball across the penalty area to fire in. Sheringham, spurred on by this, soon made it 1-1 when Harry Carrington burst down the right, fired the ball across the box and after some ping-pong, Harry Stamatov put it in the back of the net. At half time it was 1-1.
