Planters edge to derby win

A seven-goal Ridgeons League Premier Division thriller at Norwich United went the way of the hosts against Great Yarmouth Town.

Ross King put United ahead with the only goal of the first half and the lead was doubled by David Cory soon after the interval.

Yarmouth pulled back with two goals in three minutes from Dominic Smith and Scott Woodcock (penalty) before Andrew Claydon restored the home lead.

Gavin Norman headed Yarmouth level again after 74 minutes but Tom Jeal struck the winner in the 85th minute.

Another Norfolk derby, this time in Division One, also saw plenty of goals with Fakenham drawing 2-2 at home to Swaffham.
