Loddon go top of Anglian Combination

Loddon United have gone to the top of the embryonic Premier Division table – but it's tight between the leading pack.

Goals from Richard Summons, Gary Summons and Myles Clarke gave Loddon a 3-1 home win over Norwich St Johns, for whom Luke Tuttle was on target.

But Sterry Cup holders Cromer are hot on their heels – second only by a goal difference of one, with Acle third, also on seven points.

Cromer were 3-0 winners over Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves, with Darren Terrington, Antoni Fawkes and David Harwood on the scoresheet.

Acle beat visiting St Andrews 2-0, their goals coming from Adam Hipperson and Regan Harman.

Behind the top there are a trio all on six points - Blofield United, Wroxham Reserves and Sheringham.

Blofield were 2-0 winners away to Mattishall, thanks to goals from Ben Morgan and Chris Holmes, while Wroxham's second string won by the same scoreline at Spixworth. Jordan Southgate and Oliver Dingli were on target for the Yachtsmen.
