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.
