Notley's Lowestoft & District League round-up

FOLLOWING last week's entire programme being wiped out normal service was nearly resumed with just a handful of games postponed.

The First Division saw leaders Hearts of Oak rack up an impressive 7-1 win against Waveney Reserves to extend their lead to four points following Blundeston Magpies draw with Kirkley & Pakefield A.

Magpies slip to third as FC Hearts beat Sole Bay Reserves 6-0 to overtake both Magpies and K&P in the table. In fifth place come Norton who had to work hard in beating lowly Oxford Arms 3-2 (Steve Moore (2) and Paul Harriman).

The games between Caxton Res and Barsham, and Spexhall and Pot Black were postponed due to waterlogged pitches, as was Wrentham's Junior Cup tie at Kedington which will now take place this weekend.

The Second Division sees new leaders as previous occupants Ole Franck lost at home 2-1 to Norton Athletic Reserves, who came from behind to win with goals from Sean Higginbotham and Gary Crisp, and propel themselves up to third place.

The new leaders are in form White Horse Seltic who crushed Crusaders 7-0.

Bungay Town A claimed the bragging rights in their derby with Ellingham as they scored a 3-1 win, while Oulton Broad and Notley's Reserves returned to winning ways with a bang as they inflicted a 7-2 defeat on Hopton White Hart.

Lowestoft International claimed a 3-0 win against lowly Waveney Gunners while the match between Corton and Pakefield Re-United, and Oxford Arms Res and Tudor were also called off.

The leaders of the Third Division remain Great Yarmouth Town Hall despite losing for the first time as they went down 2-1 against Harleston Reserves.

Suffolk Punch closed the gap to a point following their 3-1 victory against Spexhall Reserves and, with the top three five points clear and with games in hand, it does look like a three-horse race for the title.

There was an impressive first win for Blundeston Magpies Reserves who won 9-1 at White Horse Seltic Reserves and Kirkley and Pakefield B also scored plenty as they beat Factory Arms 7-1.

Waveney A collected the points in their narrow 2-1 win against Lake Lothing while six goals were shared at Earsham between them and Marquis of Lorne, as both teams stay mid-division.
