Mens 5ths – Match Report – Saturday 13th September

Norwich City 5ths vs Harleston Magpies 5ths
Won 0 – 1

After a last minute team organisation nightmare and some very generous help from Fabien Mitchell and the Grahams – Murray and James – a full 5th XI assembled at Taverham.

Admittedly the team ethos of youth development could not be fulfilled this weekend with just Kieran Peters and Alex Lawrence available but nevertheless the older heads gave lots of encouragement to the younger generation of Stuart Peters, Roger Kent and Simon Bardwell.

However, it took some good goal keeping by first James Graham and then in the second half Murray Graham to keep Norwich at bay but they were out shone by the City goal keeper who stole the show thwarting attack after attack finally being beaten just 10 minutes before time when the ball was finally worked round him and turn in at the back post by Fabien Mitchell.

A well deserved victory with very competent and promising displays from both Kieran Peters and Alex Lawrence on his debut for the club.
