Lee Gilman scored twice for the Yachtsmen, who had beaten Lowestoft 6-0 in midweek, but Walsham halved the deficit early in the second half. Andy Key settled their nerves, making it 3-1 from the penalty spot, but Wroxham then had player-manager Damian Hilton sent off. That setback did not stop the Yachtsmen going on to net twice more, with substitute Paul Cook getting both goals.

Lowestoft also hit five as they bounced back from their midweek mauling to thump Felixstowe & Walton United 5-2.

Richard Woodrow and Russell Stock put Lowestoft ahead after they had fallen behind early on, but Felixstowe hit back to equalise. Woodrow then volleyed in his second of the game and two further goals from Ally McKenna sealed the win.

Dereham extended their unbeaten run to seven games as they held on for a goalless draw at CRC.

Swaffham lost 3-1 at home to second-placed Needham Market. Liam Forshaw equalised on 50 minutes after the hosts had fallen behind in the first half, but two goals in the last 20 minutes ended Swaffham's resistance.
