ELWIN STRIKES AS LEADERS DROP POINTS

But the home side were level before the break when Matty Elwin latched onto a through ball from Andy Cooke to beat the keeper. The second half saw the home side create some good chances and as the game drew to a close both sides had chances to take all three points but it wasn’t to be. A really good game well handled by Mathew Hudson and played in great spirit, just the workout both sides needed before their respective League cup semi finals next weekend. Acle Rangers are now in second spot as they warmed up for their semi final. Daniel Foreman, Julian Bussell and Ricky Forder all scored in a 3-1 home win over Spixworth Sunday
