Upwell FC won Outwell Swifts’ annual pre-season tournament, the Bert Titmarsh Trophy after playing a semi-final and final in the space of three days.

Upwell beat a mixture of Leverington firsts and reserve team players in the semi 5-2, with goals coming from Luke Gale (2), Ty Clarke (2) and Jack Davis.

Upwell then took on Outwell’s victors, Redgate Rangers from the Anglian Combination leagues. Prior to this game, the Norfolk coast team’s last defeat came back in November 2012. However, Upwell ran out 4-2 winners thanks to Gale and Clarke (3).

Matt Staton and Jack Davis both played on Thursday against Leverington, but weren’t available on Saturday due to work.
