Tomorrow is the turn of Downham Town and Wymondham Town who
will play Norwich United at Carrow Road on Monday 30th April. Downham Town play
in the Thurlow Nunn League Division One whilst their opponents Wymondham Town
are the lowest ranked team left in the competition as they play in the Anglian
Combination First Division.
Downham Town haven't enjoyed much success in this
competition with their last triumph coming all the way back in 1966 against
Norwich Electricity. The club then reached the final in 1967, 1968 and 1969 but
lost in each final by the same scoreline of 2-1. They will therefore see this
as a great opportunity to reach the final for the first time in 49 years.
Downham Town are having a mixed season as they are currently mid table and
haven't been able to get on a winning run but their cup form has been brilliant
as they have beaten local rivals Swaffham Town, Great Yarmouth Town and Anglian
Combination Premier Division high flyers Norwich CEYMS.
Wymondham Town are two times Senior Cup winners with their
victories coming all the way back in 1888 and 1889 as they beat Thorpe and Lynn
Town respectively. Wymondham Town are having a great season as they currently
sit top of the Anglian Combination First Division and are looking likely to get
promoted back to the Premier Division after 3 seasons away. They have also
enjoyed a great run in the Senior Cup and have beaten higher league opposition
along their way to the Semi Final such as Mulbarton Wanderers, Thetford Town
and Acle United.
Let's hope for another exciting semi-final!
