They followed this up by beating Sprowston A and Gorleston before drawing their final group game with Lakeford, to end up as group winners.
The semi-finals saw them play Drayton, and despite racing into a 2-0 lead they were pegged back to 2-2, before deservedly getting a third to make it through to the final, where they were to face a determined Taverham A again.
