CROMER footballers have retained the Lifeboat Cup charity silverware after a second successive win over Sheringham in the final.

A 65th-minute strike from leading scorer Simon Robinson proved to be the decider in one of the best finals to be seen at Cabbell Park for many seasons.

The competition raised about �2,000 for the RNLI, but was down more than �300 on a typical year, hampered this year when vandalism at the clubhouse meant eight matches had to be moved to other grounds.

The clubhouse is still closed and prevented any after-match hospitality, said co-organiser Derek Hinds, who praised neighbouring clubs at Holt and East Runton for helping out by hosting the earlier games.

The competition has raised �23,000 for the local lifeboat station in the past 10 years.
