King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: Challengers England’s Hope prove their Division One title potential
The game of the day was undoubtedly at River Lane where Division One champions Chilvers welcomed their potential successors, England's Hope.
Hope improved their title credentials with an emphatic 6-2 away win. Jack Johnson and Louis Gaughran scored for Chilvers but it wasn't enough, as goals from Joe Whyborn (2), Ricky Gunns, Sam Whyborn, Simon Bird and Lewis Hewitt saw Hope home.
Horsepigs improved to record an excellent 5-1 win over previously unbeaten Burt. Nathan Cross helped himself to three goals, supported by strikes from Jack Gould and John Sykes. Rowan Smith replied for Burt. FANG knuckled down and ground out a good 3-1 win over Clenchwarton Victory. Chris Scamell scored for the side who couldn't live up to their name as Alex Oughton, Steve Asprey and Chez Rust won it for FANG.
In Division Two, CR Eastern claimed an impressive 4-3 win at March Saracens. Connor Mazurek bagged two for March, with Ash Taylor also netting. CR scored through Ashley Prosper (2), Daniel Kerry and Ryan Juby. March remain top but CR Eastern still sport a 100pc record having played a game less.
Sutton St James kept up their own 100pc record with a confident 3-0 win over Farmers Arms. Jake Clitheroe, Robin Mansfield and Phil Newton found the net. Tilney won 3-1 at Flitcham. Dan Fuller scored for the hosts but Michael Watts, Chris Young and an own goal saw the Green Lions to three points.
