Notley's Lowestoft & District League

THE first Saturday in 2008 saw a near full programme of league fixtures.

In Division One, leaders Norton Athletic faced a tricky looking tie at fourth placed Waveney Youth who had conceded just two goals in their previous five matches.

It was a different story though as Norton were clinical in front of goal as they ran out 7-2 winners with goals coming from Paul Harriman 2, Andy Green 2, Ryan Hills, Steven Hak and an own goal.

Waveney saw Rob Hills save a penalty but Shaun Howes tucked home the rebound with an own goal giving them a late second.

Hearts of Oak are up to second place following their 4-0 win at CDS Waveney with two goals in each half.

Jonny Williams rounded the keeper to open the scoring before Vinny Terry struck a 25 yard screamer to double the advantage. A second from Williams and one from Jermaine Boyce sealed the win.

It looked a close game to call at Dip Farm between Oxford Arms and Wrentham and it ended all square at 2-2.

It was Wrentham that gained the lead on the stroke of half time through Stuart Holland. On the hour mark Wrentham doubled their lead through John McGrain.

Oxford however battled back and scored twice to come back on level terms with the equaliser coming in the 82nd minute.

At the Carlton Community Centre the match between Carlton Rangers and Pot Black saw most of its drama in the last minute during which Pot Black scored to go 2-1 ahead.

From the kick off Carlton went up the other end and struck the post however Pot Black. held on.

Spexhall started the year with a 6-2 win at Corton Reserves who look in real trouble at the foot of the table.

The second division saw the top three all pick up three points. Barsham came back from Royal Standard with a clean sheet and a 2-0 win whilst second placed Hearts of Oak Reserves were made to battle all the way by to a 4-3 win over Beccles Caxton Reserves.

Third placed Blundeston Magpies won 3-1 at fourth placed Corton White Horse Seltic to open the gap to five points.

The form team in the division at the moment are Waveney Gunners who stretched their unbeaten run to ten games as they crushed Crusaders 6-0 and are now sitting in fifth place.

Oulton Broad & Notley's Reserves swap places with Lacon Arms as they ran riot 7-0 over basement side Suffolk Punch.

Lacon Arms went down 5-3 at Pakefield Re-United who jump up three places as a result.

In the third division it was top v bottom as Factory Arms entertained Ole Frank.

There looked to be a surprise in store as Factory Arms were leading 2-0 at the interval however Ole Frank found their form in the second half scoring three to win 3-2.

Blundeston Plough increased their lead over third place to six points as they were on the right side of a seven goal thriller at Spexhall Reserves winning 4-3.

LIFC still hold third place but lost 3-1 to Oxford Arms Reserves who swap places with Bungay Town A as they went down 3-0 to Hopton White Hart who are sniffing around the promotion places in fourth.

Marquis of Lorne are having a much better season and they defeated Earsham 1-0 to go above their hosts in the table.
