SPONSORED BY DOUBLE G CLOTHING
LEAGUE CUP GROUP STAGE
Sunday saw three upsets in the second round of Group Stage games in the League Cup.
Heacham have been in vastly improved form of late and fancied their chances when travelling away to CSKA Reserves but CSKA pulled off a fantastic 6-3 win over 10-man Heacham.
Danny Jezeph 2 and Tom Raisbury scored for Heacham but the giant-killing was confirmed through Connor Ratcliffe 2, Phil Franklin, Jake Miller, Scott Wylie and Shaun Dickerson.
CSKA Young Boys were not to be outdone by the Reserves and had a very impressive 2-1 away win over higher division Maltings, a result made more impressive in the fact that Maltings are the only team to have taken league points off England’s Hope this season!
Kieran Hamilton was the hero with a double for Young Boys. Maltings scored through Dion Cuthbert.
MacMillan, languishing at the bottom of Division One, hosted top half side CR Eastern but recorded an emphatic 7-0 win!!
What is more impressive is the clean sheet, given that CR Eastern are the division’s top scorers!
MacMillan scored through Wayne Morton 2, Ricky Papworth, Ian Bootie, Ivan Crisp, Adam Key and an OG.
England’s Hope brushed aside Sutton St. James in an 11-1 scoreline. Sutton never gave up and got their reply through Joe Johnson but Hope won it through Sam Whyborn 5, Dean Jimson 3, Jack Dougal 2 and Justin Uddin.
March Saracens were the big winners of the day when they travelled to 2nd place Shouldham and came away impressive 7-1 victors. The result sees them jump from 5th to 3rd and occupy the promotion play-off spot.
Ash Taylor led the way with a hat-trick and Karl Anderson bagged twice. Jake Stocksbridge and Gareth Stacey scored the others.
