The Division 1
title was reclaimed by Norwich Central Baptist Church
who surrendered their crown in the last two seasons to the all-conquering UEA Rovers
NCBC were presented with the Division 1 Shield after beating Wildlife
in their last game of the season on April 26. Presenting the trophy, league vice chairman, Jim Green
, said: NCBC deserved the title having lost only twice all season, as a team who know how to play football in every sense.”
In an exciting climax in Division 2, Blofield
beat Sheringham Lighthouse
7-1 in their final game on April 19 to claim the league title by a single point from runners-up Kings Palace.
Jim Green said that it was exciting to see a team that just two seasons ago had been playing at U16 level winning the men’s Division 2.
“Last season Blofield won the Fair Play Trophy, despite winning very few games,” said Jim. “So it is great to see a team showing that they knew how to lose gracefully going on to show they know how to win.”
