King’s Lynn Sunday League round-up: Pott Row edge out Chilvers in nine-goal Kingsway thriller

There were only three games in Division One of the West Norfolk Scaffolding Sunday League – but there were 23 goals in all.

Last year's promoted sides, Chilvers and Pott Row Old Boys, fought out a nine-goal thriller at Kingsway, with Pott Row emerging 4-5 victors.

James Tricks helped himself to a hat-trick, with Tom Anderson also notching for Chilvers. But it was in vain as Sam Garner (2), Danny Littlewood, Graham Barlow and Jack Lincoln scored to see Old Boys over the finishing line.

Old White Bell and March Saracens also saw a 5-4 win for the away side as March continued their recent good form. John Sykes and Joe Allen both notched a pair for Bell, with Dan Smethurst (2), Luke Talmage, James Smith and last year's leading scorer Jermaine Watson scoring for Saracens.

Napier faced off with powerhouses England's Hope, and Hope emerged 4-1 winners against a spirited Napier side. Ryan Juby scored for The Nap, but goals from Joe Whyborn, Ben Jimson, Justin Uddin and Michael Chow extended Hope's recent winning run.

Before last weekend's Division Two games, there was a four-way tie at the top – but now it's down to two after a pair of big wins.

FANG continued their seemingly unstoppable path to the title with a 6-2 win at home against Fowler, who slumped to their first league defeat since the opening day. Anthony Munson and Shaun Dickerson scored for plucky Fowler, but Matthew Gilchrist, James Buhlemann, Tom Cunliffe and a Joseph Malby hat-trick saw the league leaders home.
