The top two clashed in Norwich and District League's Premier B with Wensum needing a point to guarantee runners-up spot – but finding champions Ceyms in no mood to ease up.

Ceyms were 9-1 winners – Stephen Stolworthy won the only game for Wensum, beating Serafim Melo.

Dynamic Rams, who look likely to end a really good season in third place, beat Harriers B 8-2, with maximums from Peter Hopking and Steve Gurton.

Gothic B beat Foxwood D 7-3, thanks to a Paul Durrant maximum, but it was a good team effort, with Paul Pegg and John Howlett picking up two each. Carl Matthewson won a brace for Foxwood.

Gothic were always going to struggle against league leaders Foxwood G and they lost 9-1. Gothic welcomed the return of Roger Crossfield after an eight-week lay off, and he looks to be in good form, just losing to Mark Trett in the opening match. Steve Andrews, for Gothic, played well to defeat Bob King. In spite of some battling efforts, the visitors ran out convincing winners to clinch the Division One title.

Taverham B got off to a blistering start against Foxwood F, taking a 3-0 lead. Then they just got better, winning the next four and went on to win 9-1.

SFC B made it three wins in a row, beating Electricity 7-3 and ending any hope their opponents had of lifting themselves out of the bottom two. Former 'Spark' Jamie Mackintosh could not inspire the home team. Andy Beane took the first of his three wins of the evening 12-10 in the fifth against Dave Fordham. Another five-setter saw Simon Halliday play the better shots, after being pegged back; he took the final set against Keith Meader. Richard Westgate made it a perfect start for the visitors, after dropping the first set to then beat Mike Cable. It was almost inevitable that the doubles would be a five-set affair. Electricity finally took the win to give them one point for their evening's efforts.
