As the season begins to wind down in most divisions, a glorious morning saw some clubs with plenty at stake record vital results.

In the Premier Division, what seemed at one point to be a great season for DE FC petered out in the end, as they lost their final game of the season 7-5 at home to bottom side Bungay Town.

Dan Cook gave Poringland Wanderers the lead at Horsford United, but the home side took a share of the spoils, scoring with 20 minutes left, and despite a hat-trick from Rob Warminger, Farmhouse went down 4-3 to League Cup finalists Schoolhouse.

Norman Wanderers need just a point from their final two games to lift the 1A title after goals by Adam Townsend and Tyrone Sparrow helped them to a 2-0 victory over Longdale Rovers. The result means Brooke will be at least runners-up and take a place in the play-off final after beating Warwick St United 6-1. Dan King hit four for Brooke whilst other goals came from Greg Finch and Matt Nichols. United's player-manager Neil Bajomee hit a consolation goal with a 25-yard free-kick. The Middle Green ran out 4-2 winners at Newsman Celtic whilst neither side could find the net as Vale Longo played host to New Buckenham.

In Division 1B, champions Sprowston Wanderers completed their season by winning 5-3 at Salhouse Rovers. Acle Rangers were 5-1 winners over Aslacton and Chris Fuller hit a hat-trick in Briston Wanderers' 5-3 win at Hethersett Athletic for whom Tom Nurse also scored a treble. There were 11 goals for Silver Fox as they beat bottom side Cellar House.

It's still all to play for at the top of 2B as the top three all won again. Norwich Ceyms still lead the way after winning 7-1 at FC Viking and are eight points ahead of Hellesdon who have a game in hand. Hellesdon hit a dozen as they beat Sporting Iceni and remain three points clear of North Walsham who have two games in hand on Hellesdon and three on the leaders. Walsham themselves had goals from Cam Tolbart and Ryan Beeson to thank for their 2-0 win over Barracks FC.

Division 3A champions Woolpack received their trophy after their 2-1 win at Hempnall. The only game played in the Under 19s saw Hethersett Athletic beat Long Stratton 2-1.
