Mattishall and Acle rise up table

Mattishall and Acle both made ground on the leading pack in the Premier Division, leapfrogging St Andrews into third and fourth place respectively after victories on Saturday.

Leaders Cromer's derby game against Sheringham was abandoned because of the condition of the pitch, and second-placed Wroxham Reserves could only draw manage a 0-0 draw at North Walsham.

Loddon United's recent resurgence continued as they beat Spixworth 1-0 with Richard Durrant providing the crucial goal.

Beccles Town rose two places to seventh on the back of a magnificent 7-3 win at basement side Brandon, despite going a goal down after just ten seconds. This was particularly pleasing for Beccles, bouncing back after a poor result against Kirkley & Pakefield the week before.

Scoring for the Wherrymen were Alan Remblance and Ant Martin with a brace apiece, Tom Roberts, Ray Masters and Kevin Waterman, while Brandon's goals came from a Roy Bland brace, including a penalty, and Fran Ruiz.
