Norwich United tasted defeat for just the third time this season, although it meant little to the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division champions.

Losing 2-0 to fourth-placed Felixstowe and Walton United at Plantation Park does not affect the Planters' unassailable lead at the top of the table but did prevent them from breaking the 100-point barrier.

John Edridge's team can now only match the 101 points which saw them win the title last season as well, if they can win at third-placed Stanway Rovers on Saturday.

Norwich will then focus their attentions on the League Challenge Cup and Norfolk Senior Cup finals, before making the step up to the Ryman League.

Thetford Town's battle to avoid the drop comes down to the final day after a 3-0 loss at FC Clacton last night. The Brecklanders are two points adrift of survival and level on points with Fakenham in the bottom three.
