Cromer through to next round

Cromer Town 2, Wymondham Town 0

CROMER beat Anglian Combination Division One side Wymondham Town in the Mummery Cup first round.

Osborne returned in goal, Cameron came back in at centre-half and new signing from Hempnall Sam Wenham made his debut at left-back. Davies was missing through illness.

A minute's silence was held for former player, supporter and local businessman Dave Facey.

The opening period saw both teams have a couple of half-chances.

Just after the half-hour mark the Crabs took the lead. Landamore played the ball into the run of Wilton, and despite a hint of offside play continued. Wilton cut inside his marker and pulled the ball back to give Hinton a simple finish from close range.
