Nicholsons of Stalham (NEN) League



AMBITIOUS Aldborough are carrying the Nicholsons flag into the last eight of the Norfolk Primary Cup.

The Wayford Nurseries Division Two squad scored a 3-2 (Merritt 2, Hall) extra-time victory over Sporle, which, added to their unblemished league record, could set up the Lions as the only team to threaten Bodham's ambitions for silverware this season - even though the leaders' points tally is 36 from 12 games following their 3-1 (Edwards 3) result over Stalham A.

The Wayford Nurseries Division Two squad scored a 3-2 (Merritt 2, Hall) extra-time victory over Sporle, which, added to their unblemished league record, could set up the Lions as the only team to threaten Bodham's ambitions for silverware this season - even though the leaders' points tally is 36 from 12 games following their 3-1 (Edwards 3) result over Stalham A.

Hat-tricks for Fox and Crosby featured in Felmingham's 8-2 triumph at Buxton Reserves, but the most impressive marksmen of the day was Tom Crabb who netted eight in Haisbro Athletic's 11-0 win over Aldborough Reserves which hoisted them to top spot on goal difference in Knights Trophies Division Three.
