Norfolk Women’s Cup Third Round

Fakenham Town of tier six were the highest-ranked side in Norfolk to play on Sunday and they duly won away at tier seven Sprowston thanks to goals from Nicole Costin, Chloe Gravett, and Sophie Lubbock.

A shock looked possible as Thetford Town from tier seven fell behind early at home to tier eight North Walsham Angels, Kiera Brown scoring in the second minute. However, goals from Rebecca White, Kamile Omeleviciute, Laura Martins, and Kerby Colgan saw new manager Luke Pickford claim his first win and Thetford progressed.

Mulbarton Belles won through to the next round without kicking a ball as they were awarded a place in the next round after Gorleston were unable to fulfil the fixture.

Blofield United won 4-0 at FC Viking Valkyries with goals from Bailey Duffield, Scarlett Royden, Sophie Crowle, and Lola Eadie.

Aylsham suffered an early scare at Freethorpe as the home side took the lead through Viktorija Miglane but braces from Jordan Arnoup and Hannah Claughton and one from Gabrielle Cobb saw the visitors run out comfortable 5-1 winners.

Thorpe St. Andrew continued their fine form with a 6-0 victory at Bulldogs FC. Two goals from Abi Simmonds plus one apiece from Rebecca Sutton, Poppy Le-Beau, and Tabitha Mileham mean that Tony Allen’s side now lie third in the table.
