This season's Norfolk Sunday Junior Cup Final will be
contested between Watton United and Silver Fox at theFDC`s Field of Dreams.
Being in a higher division
than their opponents after being promoted from Division 3 last season, one
could assume that Silver Fox arguably have the upper hand, especially considering
how well they are doing in their first season in Division 2 this season. However,
this will not necessarily determine the final result of the Sunday Junior Cup
Final. Silver Fox have been triumphant in 13 out of 16 league games so far this
season, drawing once and losing twice. They have scored a whopping 73 goals and
have only conceded 20, giving them a goal difference of 53, the best in the Division.
They are currently four points behind league leaders AFC Norwich and they have
a game in hand so they will be looking to put the pressure on them with only 7
games to play after their game in hand.
Silver Fox’s Cup Run began
with a First Round Bye followed by a thrilling contest against Cringleford as
the game finished 3-3 after extra time meaning they required penalties to
progress. In Round 3, Silver Fox comfortably beat Hempnall 3-0 before thrashing
DCS Rapid 7-0 in the Quarter Finals. In the Semi-Finals they faced Aylsham, the
team they faced and lost to in the Final at theFDC last year, the score
finishing 1-0 to Aylsham. This time round Silver Fox got their revenge, coming
out victors in a 1-0 win.
Watton United are also
dominating their Division in Division 3. So far this season Watton have played
17 games and won all 17 making them unbeaten in the league. They have been
scoring goals for fun this season, hitting the back of the net 102 times and
conceding only 18 goals giving them a goal difference of 84 goals. They are 8
points clear of Aylsham in second place having played one less game. As for
their Cup Run, Watton started with a First Round Bye followed by three consecutive,
comfortable victories leading them into the Semi Final. In these games they
beat Woodton United 6-0, MC Rovers 4-0 and smashed Moose Park Rangers 7-0. In
the Semi Final they faced AFC Norwich, the current leaders of Silver Fox’s
Division, in the only cup game they conceded. However, they dispatched AFC
Norwich 4-1 in the end, securing their place in the final. As you can tell
Watton have very little trouble scoring goals both in the League and Cup, making
for an eye catching contest that guarantees goals!
