Spixworth got back on track with a 7-0 win at Wymondham Town, scorers Danny Brown (4), Jason Armes (2) and Charles Sizeland. Blofield United v Norwich CEYMS and Long Stratton v Dersingham Rovers were both postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

In Division One, Hempnall travelled to Hindringham and won 6-2 to stay top. Another high scoring match at Scole United saw them beat Hellesdon 6-4. Scole's goals came from Edward Cussons, William Goulding, Thomas Green, Benjamin Norton-Hugman, James Harrison and David Coleman for home team whilst Glenn Spooner (2), Jamie Hall and Connor Charlesworth notched for the visitors.
