Heavy rain saw a number of pitches waterlogged – but it was still a decent program that took place.

In the Premier Division, leaders Schoolhouse will be ruing the fact that they let a two-goal slip when making the long trip to Trimingham Pilgrims as the hosts fought back to eventually earn a 3-3 draw.

Riverside Rovers took advantage of the leaders’ slip to close the gap at the top as Connor Delaney hit a hat-trick in a 7-1 win over County Cup semi-finalists Horsford. There was also a double each for Jordan Rocastle and Jason Armes.

Farmhouse grabbed their second victory of the season as they recorded a 4-1 (Robert Warminger 2, Ryan Mickleburgh, Deion Hume) home win over Sprowston Wanderers.

Londale Rovers are the new leaders of Division One.

Hewett OB’s are third after Benedict Potts (2), Callum Speck (2), Jordan Crane and Dominic Dodds all scored in their 6-1 win at Norman Wanderers, whilst the division’s game of the day saw Brooke FC lead three times at Hellesdon but still found themselves going down 6-4.

In Division Two, Woolpack returned to the top of the table after a 3-0 win over Marlborough and Mischief FC remain in third spot after beating Barracks FC 6-2 with Theo Chamberlin (2), Oliver Hutt (2), Lee Askew and Edward Myers scoring.
