SCHOOLHOUSE MAINTAIN LEAD AT THE TOP

This weekend’s games took place on Remembrance Sunday where it’s hoped that all clubs and officials observed a minutes silence before the matches began.

A few games also failed to survive the recent heavy rain that made some pitches unfit for play

Schoolhouse remained three points clear at the top of the Premier Division after two Connor Delaney goals helped them to a narrow 2-1 home win over Dussindale Rovers. Riverside Rovers remain hot on their heels with two games in hand after scoring five without reply against The PoW. Farmhouse got back to winning ways after a good 4-2 win at AFC Wanderers, whilst Bungay Town recorded their second win of the season as they beat Norman Wanderers 4-1. Two goals from Dean Mortimer and a James Smith strike helped Aslacton to a 3-1 home win over Bell Inn.

With 1A leaders Horsford United inactive, Vale Longo missed the chance to close the gap at the top as they went down 3-2 at home to Brooke FC. Bungay Town Res moved up to second after taking a point in a 3-3 draw at Dilham, Antoni Fawkes 2 and John Bell the Dilham scorers, whilst John Revel scored twice as Anglian Rovers had a good 2-1 victory at Costessey West End. Dancing Farmers came out on top in their game with Windmill Wanderers, Matt Burroughs, Nick Bliss, Jordan Bond Dan King and mason Roe all scoring in a 6-2 victory. 1B leaders DEF FC tasted defeat for the first time this season as they lost by the odd goal of seven at Salhouse Rovers with Jamie Weavers 2, Tom Daynes and Ryan Tebble the men on target for Rovers. Revolution FC are second after a 3-2 win against Edith Cavell, whilst Taverham and Sprowston Wanderers shared the spoils as they drew 2-2.

DCS Rapid have ended the 100% record of Mad Moose in 2A as they held the leaders to a 1-1 draw. The defeat allowed Mischief FC to close the gap at the top with Lee Askew dispatching two penalties as they beat Norman Wanderers Res 2-1 and The Middle Green moved up to third as they scored ten (Jonny Bailey 4, Jesse Payne-Wilkins 3, Dom Doggett 2, Jacob Skinner) without reply at Newsman Celtic. Constable Crusaders scored seven as they beat bottom side Dynamo and Micawbers scored six (Shaun Hudson 2, Josh Ford 2, Connor Basham, Matt Duxbury) as they won at Mettingham. In 2B, Silver Fox drew level with Phoenix FC at the top after beating Hickling Barn 2-0. Trimingham Pilgrims stayed in touch after winning 5-2 at Binham Village and Cellar House grabbed their first win of the season as they beat Briston Wanderers 3-2, Ben Carver, Matt Herring and  Matt Shutt getting the goals.

Another side to suffer their first defeat of the season this weekend was SNS FC who went down 2-0 at home to GaGa FC. Darren Hills and Jose Pereira Jnr scored for GaGa who also had a late penalty saved. Hewett OB capitalised on the leaders slip up to go level on points after Jordan Youngs 3, Jake Hagg 2, Tom Harvey, Louis Coleman, Jamie Forshaw, Ashley Smith and Jeffery Ayigsi all scored as they won 10-3 at AFC Westlegate.

In 3B, Sprowston Athletic drew level with Norwich Ceyms at the top of the table as they won 4-2 (Jonny Wilson,  Harry Moore, Darren Critchlow, Daniel Bruce) at North Elmham. Blofield United put eight past Barracks FC to move up to third and East Tuddenham ran out 3-2 (Lewis Batch 2, Oliver Burton) winners in a close game at Bunwell AFC. A highly entertaining game saw Ben Wright hit a hat trick with Luke Gregory and Justin Bradfield also scoring as Hethersett Athletic Res drew 5-5 at Sporting Iceni.
