Championship going to the wire
Crown Fire Central & South Norfolk League
The league's championship race is likely to go to the wire.
In midweek, third-placed Bridgham United beat the leaders, Thetford Rovers Reserves On Saturday, both teams won with Thetford Rovers Reserves hammering Bunwell 12-1 while Bridgham squeezed home ahead of Swaffham Town A by the odd goal of five.
These results mean that Thetford Rovers Reserves will need to take at least a point from their remaining match to make sure of at least the runners-up medals whereas Bridgham need eight points from their remaining four matches to make certain of their first-ever championship.
In the other Division One matches, Gressenhall beat Great Ryburgh 5-1 while Shipdham ran out 2-0 winners at Narborough.
