No change at the top

Crown Fire Central & South Norfolk League

The third and fourth-placed teams in Division One, Bridgham United and Shipdham, met and their respective positions remained unchanged after a 2-2 draw at Shipdham.

Cranworth secured three welcome points from the 2-0 home defeat of Rockland United, Narborough took a point from a home goalless draw with Great Ryburgh and Tacolneston beat bottom club Cockers 7-3.

In the outstanding third round match in the Ben Smith Memorial Cup, Thetford Rovers Reserves won 6-2 at Hingham Athletic to set up a visit to Gressenhall in the fourth round next Saturday.

Although Hingham scored first, they never recovered from conceding a penalty for deliberate handball on the goal-line which meant that they had to play for an hour with 10 men. The game was played in a tremendous spirit and was very well refereed by Tony Wareing.
