LEADING CLUBS HIT THE GOAL TRAIL

Only a handful of games were lost to waterlogged conditions this weekend as the wet and windy weather wasn’t as bad as predicted.

In the Premier Division, Schoolhouse returned to the top of the table as Rhys Logan 4, Chris hall, Callum Burke, Josh Bull and an OG all scored in their 8-1 victory over Norman Wanderers. Riverside Rovers also had their shooting boots on as there were hat tricks for Shaun Wones and Jordan Rocastle in their 9-0 win over Bungay Town. Lucas Kent 2 and Jamie Riley were also on target. Goals from Danny Howes and Matty Plumstead helped Farmhouse to a 2-1 win at Aslacton whilst an impressive first half display from The PoW saw Chris Holmes, Lee Metcalf and Ashley Mitchell give them a three goal half time lead at Poringland Wanderers. Thomas Blanch added a fourth after the break before Matt Elwin reduced the arrears from the penalty spot.

In 1A, Brooke FC moved level on points with leaders Horsford Utd after winning 4-3 at Dancing Farmers and Dilham found themselves four down after seventy minutes in their home game with Sporting Longdale, but they produced a remarkable comeback as Darren Miller 2, Nathan White, Jordan Tipple and Matt Downing all scored in the last twenty minutes as they won 5-4. In 1B, William Wanderers produced a 3-2 (Liam Brown, James Denmark, Ryan Pye) victory at Revolution FC and goals from George Crowe and Jordan Crane enabled Lakewood Utd to win 2-0 at Taverham Utd. Acle Rangers Res gained their first points of the season courtesy of a 2-1 home win over Salhouse Rovers.

In 2A, leaders Mad Moose continue to set the pace as they won 4-1 at Newsman Celtic. Mischief FC are a point behind after two Theo Chamberlain goals and a Harrison Bird strike helped them to a 3-1 home win over Constable Crusaders. Micawbers followed up last weeks good result by winning 3-2 at DCS Rapid. Three teams are on 18 points at the top of 2B. Of the two that played today, Trimingham Pilgrims scored six (George Crane 2, Lewis Smith 2, Jeff Meggeson, Liam Page) without reply at Cellar House, whilst Silver Fox scored six of the ten goals in their game with Costessey Sports.

GaGa still lead 3A despite being held to a 1-1 draw at AFC Westlegate for whom Steven Waple scored and SNS are now second after scoring eleven (Ben Morgan 4, Shane Gammage 3, Martyn Bath, Oliver Shepherd, Gary Warford, Edvinus Radvillas) without reply at home to MC Rovers. Barry Payne hit a hat trick and there were goals for Craig Sharman 2, Jake Lazel and Michael Mason as Reedham won 7-0 at Westfield. Mad Moose Res drew 1-1 at home to Winfarthing, whilst Sporting Longdale Res were 6-1 winners at Tasburgh Utd. Well done to Bunwell AFC who gained their first points since joining the league as they beat Gressenhall 6-1, and there was also a good win for East Tuddenham as they came back from Harleston Town with a 2-1 victory thanks to two goals from Franklyn Plume. Leaders Blofield Utd were 7-1 winners at Sporting Iceni and Hellesdon continue to score for fun, Josh O’Donoughue 3, Jordan Graci, Liam Robinson, Connor Charlesworth and Elliot Roe scoring as they beat Sprowston Athletic 7-3. Ben Wright 2, David Wright, David Wright and Justin Bradfield all scored for Hethersett Athletic Res as they won 5-1 at North Elmham.

In the Under 19’s it was honours even and a goal apiece as the top two, Attleborough Town and Norwich United faced each other, Daniel Whitman had put the home side ahead before Liam Mann equalised whilst Wymondham Town grabbed their first win of the season as they beat Watton United 4-2. John Paul McAvoy 2 and Matthew Thresh amongst the scorers. Due to equipment damage at Scole, their game against Bulldogs was switched to the home of the Thetford side, but travelling proved no problem to Scole who had Ryan Jackson 2, Nathan Doe 2,  Sam Debenham and Callum Boulter all scoring in a 6-2 win.

The B division leaders Marlborough are five points clear after beating Hellesdon B 5-0 with goals coming from Toby Tye 2, Lee Jackson, Alex Philpott and Bradley Spooner whilst the local derby between Thorpe Village and St Andrews ended all square at 4-4. Well done to Old Catton and Easton, who after being told on Friday that the grass pitches at Easton College were unfit, moved their game to Old Catton’s home ground to get the game played. The match ended in a 4-2 win to Catton.

Drayton now have eight wins from eight games after beating Dereham Town 4-1, the goals coming from Joseph Welton, Tobias Oliver, Jack Dearden and Sam Wharton, whilst North Walsham scored nineteen when winning at Happisburgh Hammers. Sprowston Athletic had a 7-1 win over Aylsham and Horsford Youth overcame Swanton Morley 2-1.
