Harleston Town kept up the pressure on leaders Spixworth at the top of the Anglian Combination Premier Division table with a 2-0 win against Waveney.

Goals from Nathan Russell and Brendan Burke ensured all three points for Town, who travel to Cromer on Wednesday evening. If they can take all three points against the Crabs then it sets up a winner takes all clash against Spixworth next weekend.

Mulbarton Wanderers secured third place by beating Reepham Town 4-0 thanks to goals from Daegan Watts, Mark Sutcliffe, Jimmy McCoy and Ben Thompson. George Barnden and Keegan Middleton scored for Caister to earn a 2-2 draw with Long Stratton, Sam Page scored the other two.

Stalham Town enjoyed their trip to Wroxham Reserves with a 2-0 win. Daniel Crosby and Daniel Camish got the goals.

In Division One, Kevin Clipston (two) and Stuart Broughton scored for Hindringham during a welcome 3-0 win over Mundford, to pull clear of relegation. North Walsham Town beat Attleborough Town 2-0 with goals from Connor Carey and Liam Clarke. Unfortunately the Dersingham Rovers v Scole United match was abandoned due to injury in the 71st minute, but the other results now see Dersingham relegated.
