Cup finals provide exciting end to NCFL youth season

An action-packed day of cup final action brought the Norfolk Christian Football League’s youth sections to an exciting climax on Saturday May 6 at Brooke. Keith Morris reports.

NCFLYouthFinalsMay17U10x650The action started with the U10 final between Silver Road and favourites Brooke Adventurers. 

Brooke quickly got into their stride and were 4-0 up at half time and by the end ran out comfortable 9-0 winners with a hat-trick from Joe Allcock, two goals from Adam Robson and Thomas Robson and a goal apiece from Will Panter and Shay Given.

Man of the match was the Silver Road goalkeeper, Kornel Chmielenski, who made a string of admirable saves.
 


In the U12 final, undefeated league champions Lowestoft United, who had not dropped a point all season, took on fourth place Lighthouse.

Joel Parish put United one up after ten minutes and the game remained close until the 22nd minute when league top-scorer and golden boot winner Joshua David added to his 40 league gaols for the season to make it 2-0. Joel Parish quickly added a third before half-time.

In the second half, Lighthouse came out with purpose and a determined display saw them have several clear chances to get back into the match but they could not convert and Lowestoft held on to complete a league and cup double.



NCFLYouthFinalsMay17U14x650The U14 final saw league winners Lighthouse take on third placed Worstead Wolves. Riley Dyball put Lighthouse ahead after ten minutes and Ethan Slater replied almost immediately for Worstead with a crisp shot from well outside the box. A tight closely-fought game was heading for extra time when Alex Smith scored with a free-kick 15 years out with less than 10 minutes left, to claim the cup for Lighthouse.


In the U16 final, league winners Brooke Adventurers took on guest team Sprowston YEP Bears who beat league runners-up Surrey Chapel in their semi-final.

Backed by strong home support, Brooke pressed early on and Lloyd Perfitt scored a vital opener after just a few minutes. Sprowston fought hard to get back on terms and had several chances to do so. Brooke hit the bar and proved too strong defensively to let their lead slip and secured their own league and cup double making it a very successfully day for club Brooke Adventurers.

Paul Smith from Lighthouse was presented with the Tim Stapleford Trophy by league chairman Mike Culwick, for his dedication to the club and league and in particular for his efforts to connect the Sheringham church’s football teams with the local community. The club also entered at least one team into each league age group over the last few years.

The Sam Hollinger long-service trophy was given to Rob Dixon, U16 manager of Brooke Adventurers, for his long service to the club and the league.
Mike said: “It was a fantastic day of football and a real credit to the league when you get teams playing in a way which shows what the Christian league is all about.”
