Bridgham reach Fen Regis Shield semi-finals

Bridgham Utd 6 Cockers 1

Bridgham Utd reached the semi- final of the Crown Fire Central & South Norfolk League’s Fen Regis Shield with a comfortable win against Division Two Cockers – a result which meant they finished top of Group D.

Bridgham struggled to convert chances and Cockers took a shock lead with a superb free-kick after half an hour and also went close on three other occasions.

However, Bridgham equalised straight away through Scott Marketis and soon took the lead via an own goal from a corner.

Leading scorer Alan Boon made it 3-1 before half time after a fine finish.

In the final 20 minutes of the second half Bridgham scored three more goals.

First Jack West-Jordan finished well, then Boon scored his 25th goal of the season before Jason Conroy dribbled through the Cockers defence to complete the scoring.
