Southwold will be looking to win their game, while hoping for a favour from elsewhere, as a fascinating battle for the London Three Eastern Counties title continues on Saturday.

It's currently neck-and-neck at the top of the table, with Southwold and Stowmarket locked together on 71 points, while Ely are just six points behind them in third.

Southwold make the long journey to mid-table West Norfolk, while Stowmarket and Ely meet at Chilton Fields, and a combination of two away wins would put Wold firmly in the driving seat with three games left to play.

Elsewhere Holt play host to Wymondham and Thetford entertain Crusaders.

Norwich will have an unexpected afternoon off after their home match against Wanstead in Division Two North East was declared a walk-over.
