WITH the previous week's defeat in their minds the Reepham's teams watchword was “bouncebackability”. This Cyril Ballyn Trophy match had added spice as Yarmouth's first team did not have a game.

The Bloaters started the sharper and should have gone in at half-time at least level, if not one up. Nando Vide had a couple of shots well saved by Martin Failes in Reepham's goal. However, it was the Robins who scored the only goal of the game just before the break. A cross from Kevin Winkworth was fumbled into his own net by keeper Steve Pryke.

The second half was a more settled affair with Reepham totally on top. They could have added to their lead, but chances were few. Reepham assistant manager Paul Belton said: “Another tough game against a very able team. Our performance was not vintage but we got better as the game went on. The result was perfect. I'd take 1-0 every week.” Reepham's reward is an away semi-final tie against Norwich St John.

Reepham's reserves battled out a good 2-2 draw at home to Waveney, the Sunday team won 9-3 away to Mad Moose and the Reepham U16s romped to a 19-0 victory against North Walsham.
