Borough is Green for the Summer
Jack Garrods first half goal gave Gorleston the local bragging rights and saw his team make it five derby games without defeat.
Stewart Larter made four changes from the side that had drawn with Histon.
Isaac Burrage and Keegan Middleton had to be content with a place on the bench whilst skipper Aarron Taylor was unavailable. Jackson Ramm, Peter Lambert and Ismael Fatadjo started.
The biggest decision was who to play in goal and Scott Foreman was given the nod ahead of young Sam Freestone who had served the Greens well in the previous three games.
A scrappy start meant the first effort on goal wasn't until the tenth minute when Ben Lewis got his head to a free kick but it was easy for Foreman.
The Greens began to get a foothold in the game and came close to taking the lead midway through the half when Ross Gilfedder hit a drive from twelve yards which keeper Connor Milligan got down well to save. Joel Watts pounced on the follow up but his effort across goal drifted wide of the far post.
Gilfedder had two more efforts from distance, one going over and one wide, before Gorleston took the lead in the 33rd minute.
Watts got to a bouncing ball and knocked it in the Fatadjo whose attempt at chest control served as a flick on to Jack Garrod, running from deep, who took the ball in his stride and planted it firmly into the goal.
Yarmouth came close to equalising just four minutes later. Referee Oliver Morris-Sanders played a good advantage as Kyle Ingram fouled Tom Cullumbine with the ball running on to Miles Palmer who bore down on goal but was denied by Foreman's foot.
Foreman then kept out a Kieran Hagan before a mis-cued Peter Lambert header allowed Cullumbine to get in behind. He lifted the ball over the advancing Foreman but also over the bar.
Milligan was the first keeper called into action in the second half when Gilfedder almost bundled in a Ramm cross. Garrod was close to getting to Watts cross and Fatadjo couldn't generate any power on a Gilfedder pass as the Greens began the second half well.
Strong Mitch McKay play gave Luke Goreham a shooting chance but the shot was over before Foreman was quick off his line to snuff out Cullumbine.
Lady luck shone on the Greens in the 71st minute with their goal leading a charmed life. One of numerous Yarmouth long throws into the area saw a goalmouth scramble as the ball pinballed around in front of the net before eventually being cleared.
Gorleston actually countered well from that scramble with Gilfedder shooting over.
McKay had a 20 yard drive fly inches over the bar before George Yusuff headed a Mitch Forbes drive off the line.
The Bloaters kept applying the pressure, launching the ball into the Greens box every chance they got but, with the Green Army roaring them on from the stand, Gorleston stood strong.
Yusuff and Lambert were winning virtually every header between them and a Green body got in the way of a fierce Yarmouth drive three minutes into stoppage time to ensure Gorleston ended the season on a high.
