Jordan Rocastle’s brace and goals from Kierron Rose and Sam Gauntlett secured Spixworth’s 4-2 Mummery Cup quarter-final win over rivals St Andrews.

The defeated team’s goals came from Michael Capleton and John Muir in what was an end-to-end affair which saw Spixworth prevail thanks to their more ruthless nature in front of goal.

Nicholas Crawley bagged a double in Caister’s 3-0 win at Scole United in a last-eight match which also saw Kieran Hack find the net.

Wroxham Reserves against their Mulbarton counterparts needs to be rearranged while Acle United and Beccles Town will play their delayed match on Saturday.

The winners will visit Blofield United in the quarters. A host of postponements due to the wet weather saw only one match survive in the Premier Division.

That came at Dersingham Rovers with goals from Jack Johnson and Louis Gaughran clinching a 2-1 victory over Norwich CEYMS. Kel Haywood registered for the visitors. Tom Spalding and Liam Jackson got on the scoresheet in the 1-1 draw between Bradenham Wanderers and North Walsham Town.

Aylsham (goalscorers Richard Myhill, Philip Read, Matthew Brett, Edward Botwright and Thomas Coe) thumped Poringland Wanderers (George McGiven) 5-1.

Bungay Town and Hellesdon drew 0-0.

  • Where in the Yarmouth Mercury area is Spixworth? Clearly the Norwich reporters do not know their geography! Caister are the local team who are now in the semi-final and should be the headline.
