Dazzlers Go Top

Once again the weather took control this morning with a frost, meaning only 7 games were played. Credit to the teams playing in the those 7 games for not calling off too early and allowing an extra 15 minutes for the pitches to thaw, kicking off at 10.45.

Division 1 promotion chasing Hewett Old Boys and Longdale Rovers played out a 0-0 draw, a rarity in Sunday league football, a result that sees Longdale remain in third and Hewett move up to forth. Windmill picked up their second win in two games with a comfortable 7-3 win over bottom placed club Norman Wanderers Reserves.

In Division 2 Drayton Dazzlers had the chance to go top of the table against Vale Longo.  A close first half saw Dazzlers take the lead and should have extended that but a fine penalty save by Jim Witard kept Vale in the game.  Drayton were the better side in the second and even though Vale had chances, they had no answer to the slick passing moves that resulted in Drayton scoring twice more to win 3-0.

AFC Norwich were big winners in Division 4, James Wheeler scoring four of the twelve they scored without reply against Woodton United.  AFC continue to lead the way at the top of the league and have now opened up an eight point gap between them and second placed FC Viking.

In the Under 19s there were three games played.  Top of the table Old Catton hosted St Andrews and it was the away team who came away with the three points, Joshua McCarthy 2, Billy Wright and Jake Jackson scoring as they won 4-1.  Hellesdon moved about Hethersett into seventh with 4-0 (Max Ingrey, Matt Storey 2, Rob Howard) win and Cringleford won by the odd goal in five at Mulbarton Wanderers thanks to goals from Harry Browne, Joe Dickinson and Jay Tozer.

In the County Senior Cup, Riverside Rovers bowed out of the competition as they went down 4-1 at Kings Lynn side Chilvers
