The Graver Cup and Charlie Day Cup finals took pride of place at a sun-soaked Heacham Football Club on Saturday.There was an excellent turnout for both finals which capped off another excellent campaign in the Solar Shed North West Norfolk Football League.Both finals produced a flurry of goals with the Charlie Day Cup showpiece between Clenchwarton Reserves and Marshland Saints Reserves eventually being decided by a penalty shoot-out.Clenchwarton had never been ahead in the tie as Saints took control of the first half.Alan Jex and Eddie McGahren were both on target for the Saints who held a 2-1 lead going into the interval.But Clenchwarton refused to lie down and Brian King, Cameron Smith and Lewis Burton were all on target as a late equaliser forced the tie to be settled from the spot.A prolonged penalty shoot-out, with a couple of kicks having to be re-taken, ended with Clechwarton Reserves winning 4-2 from the spot. There was also plenty of drama in the Graver Cup clash between The Woottons and Dersingham Rovers Reserves.The final saw Division Two Woottons complete a league and cup double. Woottons chairman Tim Kirby scored at both ends of the pitch in an incident-packed first half which was littered with mistakes.Mark Smith and Alan Burch also found the back of the net as The Woottons held a 3-2 lead at the interval after Ahmed Rhaouti had netted Rovers’ second goal of the afternoon.Rovers enjoyed plenty of possession in the second half before Steve Fisher delivered the killer blow for The Woottons by adding a fourth goal.Both finals were once again supported by the 8:56 Foundation.
