FOOTBALL: It is a big day for three West Norfolk teams tomorrow as they battle for a place in county cup finals.
Gayton United will be playing for a rare double with both their first and second teams in Norfolk County FA cup semi-final action.
And it could be an all-West Norfolk Junior Cup final with neighbours Heacham competing in the other
semi-final. Both ties kick-off at 2pm with Gayton welcoming Sprowston Athletic to Lime Kiln Road, while Heacham take on Gorleston Reserves 15 miles away at Station Road.
Gayton Reserves are on the road for their Primary Cup semi-final, travelling to Dussindale Rovers Reserves (also 2pm).
Anglian Combination Division Two leaders Sprowston will give Gayton a tough test and have already beaten their hosts 2-1 away in the league but Gayton have seen off the challenges of AC Mill Lane, Poringland Wanderers, Great Yarmouth Town Reserves and AFC Walpole in their cup run so will be confident of an upset.
Gorleston are second in the Division Two table, a level higher than Heacham, and manager David Griggs is under no illusion of the task awaiting his side, who have beaten Dersingham Rovers, Earsham, Snettisham and Mattishall Reserves to reach the last four.
“We have stepped up into Division Three and are currently top. A lot of hard work has gone into that and we are determined to finish off that good work.
“The cup run has been nice and, with the final usually at Carrow Road, it gives a special opportunity for everyone at the club.
“We have a cracking squad who train hard week in week out and this has been a factor in our excellent results.
Assistant manager, Ross McNeil added: “The league is our priority but we will be giving it our best on Saturday to give the great people who run Heacham a day out at Carrow Road.”
