Blofield poised for title glory

Blofield United will be aiming to wrap up the Dolphin Autos Anglian Combination Premier Division title tomorrow night after taking over at the top on Saturday.

Blofield United will be aiming to wrap up the Dolphin Autos Anglian Combination Premier Division title tomorrow night after taking over at the top on Saturday.

While Paddy Murphy's side were securing a 1-0 home win over North Walsham, with Neil Maguire grabbing the crucial goal, rivals Brandon were coming unstuck in spectacular fashion at Wroxham Reserves.

The morning leaders were hammered 5-1 by the Yachtsmen's second string and are now a point behind Blofield with just one game left to play - at home to their Sterry Cup rivals next weekend.

For that match to mean anything Blofield must fail to beat lowly St Andrews at home tomorrow (6.30pm). Three points and the title will be theirs, anything less and Brandon would be able to pip them to the post by winning on Saturday.

Matthew Eves led the way for Wroxham Reserves with two goals, while Oliver King, Kane Taylor and Ben Furlong also hit the target, with Lee Webber replying for Brandon.

Dersingham beat relegated Attleborough 6-1 with Adam Seal (3), Alex Scott, Elliott Kempton and Daryl Rose getting the goals. Similarly doomed St Andrews warmed up for their Blofield mission by winning 1-0 at Lowestoft Reserves (Steve Blackett).

Hindringham's hopes of claiming the Division One title ended when they were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw at Wymondham Town. Mark King put the visitors ahead before the break, but Town hit back early in the second period through a Shawn Overall free-kick and a frustrated Hindringham had to settle for a point when a late strike was ruled out for offside.

The result means Hempnall, who completed their fixtures last week, are champions and Hindringham need to win their final two fixtures to ensure they join them in the top flight next season.

Should they slip up then Loddon, currently one point ahead of them with just one game to play, are well placed to take advantage. They won 4-0 at bottom side Sprowston Wanderers (David Matthews 3, Hadlee Wright).
