In the Premier Division, the top three are now all on 31 points after a late goal from Julian Bussell was enough for Acle Rangers to take all three points against DE FC.

Acle are now top as morning leaders Riverside Rovers were without a game due to Dilham Cross Keys' inability to raise a side. Goal difference between the top three is also very tight but Rovers do now have a game in hand.

Schoolhouse warmed up for their upcoming League Cup semi-final by scoring six at Poringland while Horsford United scored seven when winning at Bungay Town.

In 1A, leaders Norman Wanderers' good season continued as they moved a step nearer to the title by beating Windmill Wanderers 3-1. Brooke remain second after a 4-1 home win over near rivals The Middle Green, while Longdale Rovers are still in the mix after winning 2-1 at Warwick St United. New Buckenham scored five of the nine goals in their home game with Vale Longo and Newsman Celtic were winners of the basement battle, beating Bungay Town Reserves 4-2.

Congratulations go to Sprowston Wanderers who are finally back in the Premier Division. Their 8-1 home win over Briston Wanderers coupled with Trimingham Pilgrims' 5-2 defeat at Phoenix gave them the title. Matty Eves hit a hat-trick and there was a double for Danny Knight and goals for Lewis Franklin, Chris Curtis and Dan Childerhouse as Wanderers clinched the league with two games to spare.

Aslacton scored eight (Jutty Womack 3, Ed Lake 2, Dave Bishop 2, Dan Carr) in winning at Binham Village and Salhouse Rovers were 6-0 (Craig Boyles 4, Alan Perry, Sam Browne) victors over Acle Rangers Reserves.

Another team to congratulate are Hewett OBs. They went down 2-1 at Mettingham (Robbie Mitson, Ben Mitson) but the failure of SNS to take all three points in a 4-4 draw at Dynamo means the 2A title is theirs.

They can now look forward to a County Cup Final on March 31 against North Walsham Town, with one trophy in the bag. That should be a cracker.
