Hat-trick hero Huckerby helps Cringleford lift this year’s Norfolk Veterans Cup

Full Time – Horsford 1-4 Cringleford

Cringleford opened the scoring when Darren Huckerby crossed the ball from about 35 yards out and somehow the ball went past everyone. The Cringleford forwards tried desperately to get on the end of the cross but failed, however this put the keeper off and the ball bobbled into the bottom corner of the net.

Half Time – Horsford 0-1 Cringleford

Horsford equalised after 8 minutes had been played in the second half. A corner was whipped into the box from the right and Horsford captain, Steve Middleton, headed the ball over the struggling Richard Anderson in the Cringleford net.

Cringleford retook the lead when Huckerby beat his man on the left and crossed the ball to the feet of Matt Metcalf in the box. Metcalf made no mistake when he was required to blast the ball home from less than 6 yards out.

Huckerby really showed that form is temporary and class is permanent at the end of the second half. He whipped two free kicks into the back of the net leaving the goalkeeper no chance in the Horsford goal. These late two goals ensured that Cringleford defended the Norfolk Veterans Cup.

Full Time – Horsford 1-4 Cringleford
