League hit by weather

Crown Fire Central & South Norfolk League

The heavy rain of the past 24 hours had a serious impact on the league's programme with six league matches postponed because of waterlogged pitches. There were only three matches completed in Division One and Shipdham made the most of it with a 3-2 win over bottom team Cockers, a result which lifts them up to fourth in the table. Tacolneston's good run continued with a 7-1 win at Cranworth and Narborough picked up three points with a 3-0 win at Great Ryburgh.

The final of the Sound & Vision Junior League Cup will be between the top two in Division One.

Thetford Rovers Res won 3-1 at Bridgham Utd while Dereham Town A beat Gressenhall 2-0 in a match which had its share of controversy.

The Division Two, leaders Hethersett Athletic dropped two points in being held to a 3-3 draw by Yaxham. But that blow was softened by the news that second-placed Feltwell Utd had lost the last unbeaten record in the league in a 5-3 home defeat at the hands of Northwold S&SC, a result which moved Northwold up to third.

Morley Village beat Sporle 5-3, Saham Toney Res were 4-2 home winners over Wymondham Town A and Necton won 6-4 at bottom team Hingham Athletic Res.
