Dean Greygoose has said his Mildenhall Town side will need to be clinical to beat Norwich United in the Challenge Cup final on Monday (3pm).

The Hall take on the holders Norwich, at Diss Town’s Brewers Green Lane ground, next week hoping to cause an upset and lift the League Challenge Cup for the first time in their history.

Norwich were recently crowned Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division champions for the second season running, but Greygoose insists if Mildenhall take their chances they can come out on top.

“The key for us will be when our chances come we have got to take them,” he said. “When we get the opportunities, whether it be a set play or in open play, we’ve got to be clinical against them.”

Before Monday’s final, Mildenhall (sixth) finish their Premier Division campaign with a trip to Long Melford on Saturday (3pm).

n Elsewhere, Thetford Town (18th) will be hoping to pull off the great escape and avoid relegation from the Premier Division this weekend. Danny White’s side visit fourth place Felixstowe & Walton United for their final game of the season tomorrow (3pm), and know even a win might not be enough to keep them up — with Swaffham Town (17th) two points ahead of them.

But there could still be hope of a reprieve for the 18th placed team, pending the situation higher up the pyramid.

Thetford tasted defeats away at Saffron Walden Town (3-1, on Saturday) and FC Clacton (3-0, on Tuesday).

n Walsham-le-Willows have retained their place in the Premier Division and finish their season at home to relegation-threatened Fakenham Town tomorrow (3pm). Tanner Call and Andrew Wood were on target in their 2-0 win at Brantham Athletic last time out.

n In the First Division, Stowmarket Town finished their league campaign with a home clash against Team Bury at Greens Meadow last night.

Ace Howell hit a six-minute hat-trick in Stow’s 4-0 home win over March Town United on Saturday, before they lost 3-0 at Haverhill Borough on Tuesday. Team Bury (18th) finish the season at Great Yarmouth Town (3rd) tomorrow (3pm).
