While Norfolk cyclists took in the news that the National Road Championships are to be held here in 2019, the pleasures of club life continue to light up the shortening days.

I have the privilege of writing this column after the most ridiculous game of football I have ever seen.

Norwich Union scored a late converted try to secure a dramatic 38-38 draw at Norwich Medics in Eastern Counties 1N.

Diss put in a brave effort in their re-arranged game at Amersham before sliding to a ninth straight defeat in London One North.

Ashley King’s double helped keep Caister firmly in charge of the Anglian Combination Premier Division after a 4-0 win at home against Wroxham Reserves.

Dereham squandered a two-goal half-time lead as Maldon & Tiptree rallied to take all three points at Aldiss Park.

Running, walking, jeffing, shuffling – all are styles of moving forward which the masses enjoy when taking part in anything from a 5k parkrun to an ultra marathon.

Resurgent Dereham Town will be looking to make it a hat-trick of wins when they entertain Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday.

There seems to have been genuine surprise when Norwich’s thumping 4-0 win at Hillsborough sent them top of the league on Saturday evening.

Premier Division leaders Acle Rangers suffered their first defeat of the season this weekend when they were beaten 3-0 at Schoolhouse.

Snowflake Sailing Club’s first points meeting was by all the accounts a record breaker.

“It’s been stressful,” said a jubilant Jeremy Clark as he shared a well-earned cold beer with his team and friends after clinching the Historic Sports Car Club 70s Roadsports Championship title at Silverstone.

Local riders Paul Groombridge and Will Dorsett were among the winners when Thetford MTB opened their winter racing series on a new course based at the St Helen’s picnic area across the river from Santon Downham.

It’s true to say that our waters change faster this time of the year than at any other.

It was an unhappy return to league action for Norwich City Ladies as they went down to a 4-2 defeat at AFC Wimbledon Ladies.

All of the issues I had with Norwich City Football Club through last season and also at the beginning of this season have gone.

North Walsham gave a good account of themselves in this top of the table encounter before the hosts scored four second half tries to secure the win.

Southwold were well beaten by a Basildon side who hadn’t picked up a single point all season before the weekend.

It was a difficult and ill-disciplined afternoon in London for a Diss side who were unable to build on an encouraging start.

This was a game which the respective league positions of the two sides indicated would be close - and so it proved.

CEYMS are up to third in the Anglian Combination Premier Division after a 5-0 win over St Andrews thanks to goals from Jack Smith, Ali Zandi, Jack Lambert, Jack Cottingham and Will Stenner
