Downham faced a side from a much lower division in the shape of Wymondham Town in the semi-final, which they comfortably won 3-0 putting them into this year’s Senior Cup Final.

Norwich United entered this year’s Senior Cup in the third round when they met Sheringham FC. They had a comfortable afternoon against Sheringham as they won convincingly 7-1. In the quarter-final United faced much tougher opposition in King’s Lynn. However, this didn’t stop them brushing them aside as they won 5-0 against the Linnets. In the semi-final, United played Dereham Town at The FDC, Field of Dreams. Once again the opposition were no match to the Planters as they cruised into the final beating the Magpies 4-0.
