Trimingham Pilgrims visited Sprowston Wanderers in a Norfolk Sunday Senior Cup tie and although losing they put together a far better performance than their last two matches.

The match was stalemate until the dying minutes of the first half when following, a Pilgrims' corner, the home side counter-attacked down the right and scored to take a 1-0 half-time lead.

A minute into the second half Lewis Amos threw the ball into Daniel Tyrell and his chipped through ball reached Luke Everson who surprised the keeper with a long range shot to even the scores.

Sprowston took the lead again but Jordie Wiseman equalised for Pilgrims with a superb 25 yard free-kick smashing the ball into the roof of the net.

Just as the visitors were beginning to settle Sprowston caught them twice following free-kicks to run out 4-2 victors.

There were plenty of goals about in the Walcott Lighthouse Inn NEN League with leaders Gimingham leading the way when at Southrepps they hit eight without reply.

Cameron Walker notched a hat-trick, Oliver Mills two while Wayne Cutting and Craig Shreeve were also on target and an opponent found the net.
