NCBC win Norfolk Christian football league and cup double  

Norwich Central Baptist Church completed a Norwich Christian football league and cup double when they beat fierce rivals UEA Rovers in the Bishop Maurice Wood cup final at the Football Development Centre’s Field of Dreams at Bowthorpe today (Saturday May 13).

NCFLCupNCBCvUEA17x650A second-half hat-trick from player manager Matthew Seager sealed a 4-2 win for NCBC after UEA had taken a 2-0 lead through goals from Tom Buttery and David Bennett after they made a strong start.

NCBC clawed one back on the stroke of half time after a headed UEA own goal from a corner. NCBC equalised through a Seager header from a corner straight after half-time and he then completed a hat-trick with two poached goals from close in.

After the game, NCBC received the cup from guest of honour, Norwich Vineyard pastor Geoff Lawton, who had spoken to the teams and a crowd of around 60 before the game started.

NCBC also received the league trophy, which they won on goal difference from UEA Rovers. They were also presented with the league’s Fellowship trophy (awarded on marks from opposition teams).

To complete a clean sweep, NCBC striker Daniel Jervis was presented with a trophy as the league’s top scorer with 36 goals.

NCFLCupSoulvStalham17x650Earlier in the day, Soul Church beat Stalham Baptist Church 2-1 in the final of a closely-fought Wroxham Road Shield in front of a crowd of around 70 people at the Field of Dreams.

Stalham started strongly but Soul came back into the game before half-time and went 1-0 up just before the break with a header from captain Jonotas Neves after a corner.

Daniel Cullingford doubled the Soul lead from close-in after the Stalham keeper dropped a cross.

A couple of minutes from full-time, Dean Walker scored for Stalham with a side footed shot to make for an exciting climax. But Soul were able to see the game out to secure the trophy which was presented by Geoff Lawton.

The cup finals day was organised and hosted by league vice-chairman Jim Green.

A special cup final programme was produced by the team at Network Norfolk and contains adult and youth league end-of-season reports, tables and reveals the names of the fair play and top goal scorer awards.

It also contains full details, team sheets and officials for all of the six finals, which can be downloaded here
