North West Norfolk League round-up: Division Four goes 36-goal crazy

After a two-week break for county cup games all teams were back in league action on Saturday - and most went goal crazy.

Just six games in Division Four produced a staggering 36 goals with Lynn Napier Reserves banging almost a third of them home in an 11-1 thrashing of bottom side Ingoldisthorpe A.

Waltington Reserves clinched their first points in this term's North West Norfolk League, which is sponsored by Seddon, with a 1-1 draw at Docking. Ed Coleridge put Watlington ahead before they hit the bar serval times in search of a winner. However, Carl Meek's equaliser meant they picked up one point and not three.

Division Three Lynn Williams slipped to their first loss, despite going 1-0 ahead at Wiggenhall through Jay Branham. However, two goals from the hosts, including a late penalty, secured their comeback win.

Lynn Retreat and Redgate Rangers Reserves played out a thrilling 3-3 draw. Perry Cracknell, Harry Garwood and Thom Large netted for Rangers. Kris Smith (2) and Bobby Russell replied for Retreat.
