Notley's Lowestoft & District League round-up

AFTER last week's big freeze, service was resumed once more this week and Hearts of Oak showed that they mean business as they defeated nearest title rivals Wrentham 8-4.

It was the visitors that thought they had the upper hand as they raced into a 2-0 lead but Hearts had other ideas as they clawed back to 2-2 at the break.

They ran out easy winners in the second half adding six more goals in a game that was marred by a red card for each side.
