Mattishall make hay while rivals are absent

The top-of-the-table clash in the Anglian Combination Premier Division between Cromer and St Andrews was postponed, as was Blofield's Norfolk Senior Cup tie against Dereham.

This meant that Mattishall's 2-1 win over visitors North Walsham earned them the right to leapfrog Blofield into third place. Samuel Applegate and Andrew Fulcher netted for the hosts and Alex Fitzgerald got the goal for the Angels.

Loddon hit Brandon for six with two in reply with Daniel Andersen and James Majoribanks hitting braces with one apiece for Philip Squire and Chris Hancock. Brandon's Tony Wright and an own goal completed the scoreline.

Neil McMorran scored for Beccles Town at Dersingham Rovers, the game's only goal.

Norwich St Johns put three past Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves thanks to Matthew Racher, Luke Tuttle and Lloyd Greening with Oliver Winram replying for the Suffolk side.
