The shock of the day came in the Premier Division as leaders St Andrews were hammered 7-1 at home by Blofield United.

Jamie Smith (2), Rob Fryer (2), Ashley Mitchell (2) and Ben Morgan netted for the visitors while James Freshwater grabbed the hosts’ solitary goal. Aaron Sanders’ hat-trick helped Acle United win 3-0 at Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves to leapfrog them in the table and also replace St Andrews at the top.

Norwich CEYMS and Reepham Town shared a 4-4 draw, Mattishall (goalscorers Jack Goward and George Gagen) beat Spixworth (Jordan Rocastle) and Mulbarton Wanderers (Mark Appleton 3, John Curtis) beat Scole United (Adam Solley) 4-1. Gary Starling and George Mills earned Harleston Town’s first points as they won 2-1 at Dersingham Rovers (Louis Gaughran).

Cromer Town (Jack Hurrell and Sean Sandell) won the coastal derby 2-1 at Caister (Keegan Taylor) and Long Stratton (Dean Mortimer, Joel Howard and Will Morris) beat Wroxham Reserves (Matt Doyle and Mac Gee) 3-2.

Division One pacesetters Waveney (Bradley Hough, Kirk Gowing and Sam Shepherd) beat Bungay Town (Aiden Lowe) 3-1 as Beccles remained hot on their heels with a 7-0 win at Hempnall.

Joe Clark (2), Neil Hurren (2), Luke Bailey and Harry Brooker got their names on a scoresheet that was completed with an own goal.
