Trimingham Pilgrims travelled to Mulbarton to face The Middle Green in a League Cup tie.

They took the lead on the half hour when George Crane curled in a corner from the left and Tyrone Bowles converted at the far post.

The home side pressed early in the second half and were rewarded with an equaliser but the visitors took control in the last quarter.

Jordan Tipple cut into the penalty box and saw his effort blocked but George Crane followed up to send a blistering shot into the roof of the net.

Minutes later Liam Amos picked up the ball in his own half and raced forward, outstripping three defenders before clipping the ball past the keeper into the top right corner to secure a 3-1 victory.

Dan Gabriel tried to outdo Liam with a lung bursting run from deep in his own half but was crowded out by defenders while Pilgrims keeper Leigh Brown made some excellent saves.
