Norwich Trafford kept on course for the treble by defeating Premier Division side Woodbridge Town by two clear goals in the League Cup final at Diss Town FC. Two second-half strikes from Rob Eglington and Chris Hitchings saw them home. Having already won the inaugural Norfolk County FA Veterans Cup they now take on Costessey on Friday night in Division One.
A win would assure them of the title but realistically a point would be sufficient with two games in hand and a superior goal difference over their opponents who are guaranteed the runners-up spot.
