Central and South Norfolk League review
Most of the 1st Division teams were involved in the 1st round of the Norfolk Junior Cup. Unfortunately, most of them could not secure a win and so bow out in the opening round.
Most of the 1st Division teams were involved in the 1st round of the Norfolk Junior Cup. Unfortunately, most of them could not secure a win and so bow out in the opening round. The exceptions to that were Saham Toney who produced an excellent result in beating North Walsham Town Res. 3-2 at home and North Elmham who won an all League clash with Mulbarton Wanderers 6-2. Hingham Athletic drew 2-2 away at Gimingham Utd. but the referee failed to play extra time which leaves the tie hanging in the air.
The only match in Division 1 ended in a 5-0 away win for Redgrave Rangers at Stoke Ferry to give Redgrave their first win of the season.
Shipdham, the Division 2 leaders, maintained their 100% record with a 5-2 win at Wendling and stay 3 points ahead of Dereham Posties who ran up the highest score of the day in hammering Palgrave Utd. 10-0. Bridgham Utd. move up to 3rd place after a 7-1 home win over Morley Village Res. and are on the same number of points as Attleborough Town A who beat bottom club Necton Res. 6-2. Dickleburgh secured their first win of the season with a 5-3 home victory over Yaxham Res. and Wymondham Town A did likewise, beating Saham Toney Res. 5-0.
The Division 3 leaders Bunwell lost their 100% record in going down to a 4-2 home defeat at the hands of Toftwood Utd. Res., a result which also lifts Toftwood up to 2nd spot. Mattishall A are up to 3rd after inflicting a 3-1 defeat on Rockland Utd. Res. to end their opponents' unbeaten record and Thetford Athletic are also on 6 points after beating Hingham Athletic Res. by the odd goal of three. North Elmham Res. secured their first League win of the season with a 4-1 success at Cherry Tree, Watton Utd. A also recorded their first win in beating Bawdeswell 3-0 and Shipdham Res. also got off the mark with a 1-0 home win over Foulsham Res.
