Swardeston will have top spot very much in their sights tomorrow when they take on Great Witchingham in their latest Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League fixture.

Joe Gatting’s side were knocked off the summit last weekend when closest rivals Sudbury won at The Common to overtake them, and after losing for the first time in six games will have a point to prove at Walcis Park.

A win could well be enough for Swardeston to move back above Sudbury as the halfway point in the season approaches, with the defending champions having a tough looking home fixture against third-placed Mildenhall.

A second Norfolk derby of the weekend sees struggling Vauxhall Mallards play host to Horsford at Halvergate while an in-form Norwich side travel to Burwell and Exning.

The top two in the top flight of the Norfolk Alliance come face to face, with leaders Downham Town entertaining closer rivals Stow and North Runcton playing host to Brooke.

Downham currently lead the way by 33 points after winning all six of their games.
