Leaders Brandon Town took a big step towards the Premier Division title without kicking a ball on Saturday.

Town's game at Wroxham Reserves was postponed, but the chasing pack all failed to take advantage.

Second-placed Sheringham needed an own goal to take a point from a 1-1 draw at fourth-placed Blofield, whose goal came from Danny Brown, while Cromer, in third, were beaten 2-1 at home by Sprowston Athletic, whose goals came from Scott McKinney and Philip King. Neil Bugdale was on target for the Crabs.

It all means Brandon are a point ahead of Sheringham, but with two games in hand, while the gap between second and third is now six, with Blofield three points back. Lewis Broomfield scored a hat-trick in the biggest goalfeast of the day, with Acle United hammering Dersingham Rovers 7-1. John Curtis, Richard Hodds, Chris Holmes and Lee Cosgrove were the other scorers, with Gary English on target for the visitors.
