Sheringham booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Anglian Combination's Mummery Cup competition at the weekend as their excellent start to the season continued.

The Shannocks won the battle of the Division One sides as they beat visitors Mundford 3-0 thanks to strikes from Jack Crane, Tim Cary and an own goal.

There's a return to league action on Saturday (2.30pm) with a home match against Kirkley and Pakefield rReserves. Sheringham remain unbeaten in league and cup this season but they only have a one point advantage over Wymondham Town, having played one more game.

Wymondham scored five without reply away at Kirkley, with a hat trick from Liam Moriarty and a goal apiece from Ashley Mitchell and Charlie Blake.

Aylsham got back to winning ways with a 5-1 home victory against Watton. A hat-trick from James Oliver was added to by Matt Billing and Stuart Boam, with Sam Childerhouse scoring for Watton.

UEA went one better as they won 6-0 at home against struggling Cromer. Ivan Otono (2), Owen Betts, Ryan Swift, John Kahodi and an own goal saw the students take the points against a side who had been showing some improvement in recent games but have still lost all nine of the games they have played in league and cup so far.

The Crabs have a derby with Aylsham to look forward at Cabbell Park on Saturday (2pm) while North Walsham return to action after a weekend off at Watton (2.30pm).
