Gressenhall break Central & South Norfolk League record

League champions Feltwell United were held to a 4-4 draw by Gressenhall. This result means that Gressenhall with their 11 draws break the League record for the most draws in a season which has stood for 27 years.

Second-placed Dereham Town completed their fixtures with a 6-0 win at Rockland United and will now have to wait and see if any of the three chasing teams can convert games in hand to points to pip them for the runners up spot. Tacolneston took a step in the right direction with a 2-1 win at bottom team Narborough as did Northwold S&SC with their 4-0 victory at Shropham United.

Castle Acre Swifts are the Division Two champions. Their 8-0 win at Cockers preserved their unbeaten record and also meant that they cannot now be caught by any of the teams immediately below them. North Elmham stay second after winning 2-0 at West End and Yaxham are third following their 11-2 demolition of Sporle. Nostro have moved above Sporle into fourth place after winning by the odd goal of five at Breckland Wanderers. In the other match, Methwold Rovers beat Saham Toney Reserves 6-1.

Division Three leaders Bawdeswell maintained their unbeaten record in a 1-1 draw with fourth-placed Tugas United. Their nearest challengers both won - Scarning United got back to form with a 9-1 home win over bottom team Narborough Reserves while Mulbarton Wanderers Reserves won 2-0 at home to Great Cressingham. The top four have now confirmed their promotion places leaving the four teams below them to fight it out for the remaining place. At present, Wendling are in the best position in terms of the number of points dropped after winning 5-3 at Hingham Athletic Reserves and Rampant Horse also kept their hopes alive with a 3-0 home win over Splitz United. Colkirk proved too strong for Stoke Ferry, beating them 4-1 in a match played in good spirit and well refereed by Frank Lough.

Litcham now look favourites to lift the Division Four title. They followed up a 2-0 win over former leaders Watton United A in midweek with another 2-0 win at Watton to move above their opponents on goal difference. Four points from their remaining two fixtures will give them the Divisional Championship in their debut season in the League. Nostro Reserves beat Methwold Rovers Reserves by the only goal of the game to move above them into fourth place and also above Shropham United Reserves who went down by the odd goal of three at Beetley United. These results also confirm that North Elmham Reserves are promoted, having finished their fixtures in midweek. Weasenham Wanderers won 3-2 at Tacolneston Reserves and honours were even in the match between the bottom two with Shipdham Reserves and Methwold United taking a point each from a 2-2 draw.

Morley Village booked their place in the Fen Regis Invitation Shield final on 9 May with a 3-2 win at Bridgham United. They will meet Swaffham Town A or Shropham United who play their semi-final at Shoemakers Lane, Swaffham on Tuesday evening, kick off 7.30 pm.
