During December the side maintained their 100% league record with wins against Fakenham A (8-0), Castle Acre Swifts (5-0) and Methwold Rovers (4-2) and then knocked Division One side Mulbarton Wanderers out of the Ben Smith Memorial Cup. On Saturday they made it 15 wins out of 15 with a solid 3-1 victory over Thurton with Matt Steward (2) and Paul Norman on target.
