In the other semi-final, Upwell Town were defeated 4-3 at home to King's Lynn Social Club on Wednesday evening.

Division One Tydd opened the scoring after just a minute through Brad Easey against Premier Division Sports, who have been promoted to the Eastern Counties League for next season.

But the home side equalised a minute later and were 2-1 up after just four minutes after an own goal. Easey made it 2-2 with a stunning 30-yard free kick in the 62nd minute, but Sports scored again in the 83d minute to earn their place in the semi-finals.

Joe Whyborn netted twice for Upwell in their defeat, and Jamie Leet also scored in a game which saw five Outwell players booked and Ricky Melton sent off.

Jack Cropley and Charlie Edgley scored for Saints at Heacham.
