PUBLISHED: 10:15 04 May 2017

Dereham Taverners concluded their successful season by winning the Ben Smith Memorial Cup final at Aldiss Park.

After falling behind to an early Tacolneston goal, they regrouped after the break and it was no surprise when Chris Fuller netted the equaliser from close range following Sam Brien’s free-kick in the 70th minute.

Fuller volleyed home the winner from Matt Barden’s superb cross five minutes later to secure the Dereham pub’s fourth trophy of the season.

Tacolneston are this season’s champions in the Central and South Norfolk League sponsored by Barnes Print.

Only Morley Village could catch them but they went down to a 2-0 home defeat to Marham Wanderers. Tacolneston thereby won tht title for the first time in 35 years and Morley were runners-up in their first season back in the top flight. Billingford and Rockland ended with a goalless draw.
