This will be the highest finish Beccles has ever achieved and adding this to an appearance in the Norfolk Cup final will make it a season to remember for the club.

The players that were brought in were Justin Geyser, a number eight from South Africa, Sam Williamson, a centre from New Zealand, and Dillon Rowney, a fly-half from Australia.
The club thanks the people in the local community who have helped the overseas players by providing jobs and accommodation for them.
In particular, thanks goes to Suzanne Spooner from Tobar, Ian Griffin from the Old School, Henstead, Stuart James from the King's Head and David and Sam Smith.
The players have helped to move the small Beccles squad on to the next level.
More players for the first team has also meant that the second team has been able to put out a side more regularly and the second team now have a good squad of young players, many of which will be looking to make the step up to the first team next year.
