The weather failed to dampen the spirits at Stalham Town after they clinched a place in the Premier Division next season.
Rain put paid to all but one top-flight game – with goals from Orren Oliver, Jake Anema and Andrew Fulcher giving Mattishall a 3-2 win over Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves on the Neatherd 3G pitch, with Kaiden Goldspink and Aiden Lowe replying.
But the rain couldn't prevent Stalham, who went up after a 7-0 win at Sheringham. Two goals from Ryan Beeson and one each from Darren Patterson, Pat Gainsford, Tom McCarthy, Daniel Tindall and Jordan Tipple ensured promotion from Division One.
They are top by a point from Waveney, who have three games in hand, although they were one of the many teams who saw no action at the weekend because of the conditions.
Goals from Neil Hurren, Liam Harvey-Cooper, Joe Clark and an own goal earned Beccles Town a 4-2 win at Holt United, whose goals came from Tom Graver and Marcus Holt. Sam Bone and James Mirner scored for Bungay Town but they lost 4-2 to Wymondham Town, whose scorers were Liam Moriarty (2), Danny Pennel and Ryan Saunders.
