Norwich St Johns 0, Reepham Town 4

This was the second meeting of these two teams in two weeks and both had key players missing.

Reepham's early corner saw Martin Bramble rise at the far post to head past keeper Lee Edwards. St Johns fought back and Reepham were under more pressure when Rodney Drake limped off after just 12 minutes.

From a Saints shot, Martin Failes got down in a flash and put the ball around the post. Reepham struck once more and again it was from a header from a free-kick, Beau Howard finding the net.

On 75 minutes a neat cross from Colin Emberley saw Kevin White head back across the goal to strike partner Leon Huckle who side-footed the ball into an empty net. St Johns had a player red-carded. Big Jason Hynd took a free-kick and hit it so hard the ball bounced off Lee Edwards' chest and White was on the spot to slot home to see Reepham safely into the Cyril Ballyn Cup final on Wednesday April 8 at Trafford Park, Wroxham.

They play CEYMS who beat Mundford 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw after extra time.

Martin Bramble was the Meloncaulie Rose of Reepham man of the match. Next, Reepham are in league action away to Downham Town Reserves in a 3pm kick-off.
