Wells Town bowed out of this year’s Norfolk Junior Cup at the first hurdle, having been semi-finalists last season.
Visitors from Great Yarmouth, Old Hall, who had scored 17 goals in their first two league matches, came away with from Beach Road with a 2-0 victory.
They settled the earliest and went ahead after on five minutes when a cross was not dealt with, allowing a simple headed goal from close range.
By the first half whistle the visitors had increased their lead when their forward was given space to score with a well taken shot.
Wells lifted their game after the break and had chances to reduce the arears but stout defending and some very good goal keeping kept the advantage in the favour of Old Hall.
