Hethersett began the game with only 12 available players but unfortunately Attleborough could only field nine. Hethersett struggled in the first period and only had an early goal advantage from top scorer Tom Nurse. Hethersett settled in the second half with Nurse adding another before Tom Wyatt was brought down in the box for a penalty. Nurse calmly slotted home to complete another hat trick, shortly afterwards rounding the Keeper to score his fourth. Josh Denny was pushed forward late on and with determined  work in the box scored Hethersett's fifth. Matthew Butcher was neat and tidy in goal and Cain Living produced a superb tackle to deny Attleborough a  chance in the first half.

Hethersett  entertained Taverham and broke the deadlock when Tom Nurse showed great persistence in the box to score. Nurse completed another fine hat trick before the break with the third the pick following great work from Gordon and Farrant on the right. Shortly after half time Tom Read replaced Matthew Butcher in goal with Butcher filling in at right midfield. Taverham played well and created some half chances before Nurse riffled in his fourth and the scoring was completed when Butcher turned in the box to score with a left foot finish. The Hethersett defence were again solid with central defenders Cain Living and Kyle Sherry commanding with the team supporting each other with good passing football.

Hethersett U16s away fixture against Dereham Wanderers was played at Hethersett Memorial pitch as Dereham's venue was unavailable. Hethersett began the game knowing 2 points from the last 2 fixtures would secure them the League title and began brightly. Josh Denny scrambled the ball home to open the scoring before leading scorer Tom Nurse netted twice later in the first half. Hethersett took control after the break against a hard working Dereham side with Captain Jack Walker increasing the lead. Matthew Butcher scored another goal shortly after being replaced in goal by Tom Read. Denny drilled in his second strike before sub Tom Wyatt looking sharp hit the seventh goal. As the game ended Hethersett celebrated as bottles were uncorked knowing they had won their first League title. All the players have played wonderful football this season and richly deserve the league championship.

May 26th                 Hethersett     4      Watton     1

Champions Hethersett concluded their league fixtures with a visit from 2nd placed Watton. Hethersett began brightly with Keeler striking the post in the first minute but Watton took the lead from a header. Hethersett equalised when Josh Denny's free kick went through the hands of a disappointed keeper.

A deep cross then eluded the Watton defence and Luke Keeler turned to fire home at the back post. Hethersett carried a 2-1 lead into the second period and increased their advantage with goals from Tom Wyatt and Aaron Mehtab. Captain Jack Walker was substituted near the end passing the arm band to Tom Read which capped another fine season from Tom.

Player of the year Cain Living was again superb in defence. Hethersett's players were outstanding all season and it is hoped they  will remain with the club in the future.

Team. Butcher, Gordon, Living, Sherry, Cowan, Mehtab, Walker, Denny, Read, Keeler, Nurse. Subs, [all used] Farrant, Simmons, Wyatt.
