Plenty of positives for Holt FC
Holt United's first team finished their season by just avoiding relegation, therefore securing senior football for another season.
The reserves ended up in a respectable mid-table position while the 'A' Team narrowly missed out on promotion to the first division of the North East Norfolk League on goal difference but still attained their highest ever finish since being formed, as did the Colts team when finishing fourth in the third division.
The club's presentation evening is on Friday May 25 at the Sports and Social Club, starting at 7.30pm.
Sunday May 27 will see the annual five-a-side tournament being held at The Sports Centre, Kelling Road, Holt. For further information or to enter a team call the secretary, Charlie Todd on 01263 712707

Holt dominated from start to finish and had to work very hard to break down a well organised defence. Holt took the lead on 25 minutes when Sam Shoenmakers crossed right footed for Lewis Meecham to head home. Dogged defence and the woodwork prevented the Owls from increasing their lead until five minutes from time, when Nay Nay Ahmad found himself in the middle of the box and slotted home.
Both teams can look back on this season with satisfaction, Reepham won the U14 league cup and Holt were deserved league champions, scoring 141 goals and conceding only 12, as they picked up 58 points from their 21 games. The league trophy will be presented to the team at the annual youth presentation evening along with a congratulations card signed by Paul Lambert and the Norwich City team.
