Trimingham Pilgrims’ excellent run comes to an end

Trimingham Pilgrims, with three wins in a row under their belts in the Norwich Sunday League, travelled to Phoenix and suffered a 5-2 defeat.
The home side kicked off the first half against the slope and a strong wind but still went in 2-0 up at the break.
Early in the second half a bizarre penalty incident saw the visitors fall further behind but following an indirect free kick in the penalty box Chewy Smith pulled a goal back.
But Phoenix attacked straight from the kick-off and soon restored a three goal advantage.
Pilgrims were finding it difficult to create chances and although substitute James Farrow scored within a couples of minutes of joining the fray another goal from the penalty spot put the seal on an emphatic home victory.
