AYLSHAM LADIES played Dereham Town Ladies and welcomed the return of Nadia Child on the right wing following knee surgery. In the first half Aylsham appeared to have control of the game but couldn't find the back of the net. Credit is due to Michaela England for her tremendous work rate on the left wing. The breakthrough finally came when Gina Atherton opened the scoring for Aylsham Ladies before half-time. In the second half, from a seemingly impossible angle, Emma Gillespie lifted the ball over the keeper to put Aylsham 2-0 up. Debbie Kelly put her name on the scoresheet twice to give Aylsham a comfortable 4-0 lead. Player/manager Abby Timmins worked tirelessly in midfield. Gina Atherton scored her second goal towards the end of play. Within two minutes Abby Timmins concluded the goal tally after finishing off a neat, passing sequence bringing the final score to 6-0 to Aylsham Ladies. PoM: Emma Gillespie. Team: Sarah Bird, Lauren Dunthorne, Vikki Bird, Flick Farraway (captain), Sam Ede, Shaz Bunn, Kylie Timmins, Di England, Debbie Kelly, Michaela England, Abby Timmins, Nadia Child, Emma Gillespie, Gina Atherton. Thanks go to kit sponsor Aylsham Computers.

RUNTON UNITED LADIES drew 4-4 with Waveney Ladies as the Ravens take to the field for the first time in over a month. Having beaten their opponents 9-0 earlier in the season any thoughts of a repeat were dispelled when Waveney took the lead. Sherri Yeo scored a well-taken equaliser and centre-back Lisa Humbles gave the Ravens a lead when she scored from an attempt from within her own half. Leading scorer Becky Hills added a third before the break to give Runton the cushion of a two-goal lead. Runton lost their way after the break and conceded three goals to fall 4-3 behind but were able to salvage a point when awarded a late penalty. Jacqueline Pull converted the spot-kick to level.

STALHAM TOWN LADIES travelled to Wymondham Town glad to be playing again but found themselves under pressure from the off with Wymondham passing the ball better and creating chances. But the Stalham back four of Becca, Philippa, Paula and Sam resolutely kept them at bay, and with a couple of very good saves from keeper Marie, went in at half-time 0-0. Stalham switched to three at the back by pushing Philippa forward and pressed more and with the midfield of Amii, Emma, Sue and Ruth being able to express themselves more, Stalham scored at the end of a sequence of passing with Fiona putting in a quality ball for Tasha to finish smartly. With 10 minutes left, Stalham reverted to 4-4-2 and soaked up some late Wymondham pressure to take the game 1-0.
