Foulsham get another bite at Norfolk Junior Cup

Foulsham have won a reprieve following their recent Norfolk Junior Cup defeat to Watton United Reserves.

Following an investigation by Norfolk County FA, Watton United Reserves have been removed from the competition for fielding ineligible players in the match, which they won 2-0.

Foulsham have been re-instated and now meet Hunstanton-based Redgate Rangers in Round Three, the tie to be played on Saturday, October 27.

Foulsham's first team travelled to Thetford Rovers on Saturday for their Cyril Ballyn Trophy match.

Despite taking a 2-1 lead with goals by Craig Hagon and Richie Young, and Thetford being reduced to 10 men, Foulsham lost 3-2.

Foulsham now return to league action this weekend when they play East Harling at home, ko 2.30pm.

Foulsham Reserves went out of the CS Morley Cup when, for the second week in succession, they lost to Thorpe Village Reserves by 3-1.
