Notley's Lowestoft & District League round-up

HEARTS of Oak clinched the first division title with a comfortable 5-1 win against Blundeston Magpies at Normanston Park.

The race for the runners-up looks to be heading to Pot Black as they defeated FC Hearts 3-1 while Norton Athletic could only pick up a point against Wrentham as they came back from 3-1 down to draw 3-3.

KO Cup finalists Waveney Reserves were held to a 2-2 draw by Kirkley & Pakefield A while Spexhall move into mid-table as they won 1-0 against Beccles Caxton Reserves.

Barsham move up to their highest place for a while as they edged past Oxford Arms 3-2.

The second division title has already been won by White Horse Seltic but the battle for the second place is now back firmly in the hands of Ole Frank following their 7-0 win against Tudor FC coupled with Norton Athletic Reserves second defeat of week as they went down 2-0 at Ellingham.

Norton's defeat sees them slip to fourth as Pakefield Re-United's 4-1 win against Oxford Arms Reserves puts them in third place with the sides set to meet during the week.

Hopton White Hart returned to winning ways with a 3-2 win against Bungay Town A.

At the foot of the table the second relegation spot could be anyone of five teams. As previously mentioned Ellingham gave themselves a lifeline and they currently sit on 23 points but do have a game in hand on Oulton Broad Reserves and Waveney Gunners while Corton A's good 2-1 win against LIFC sees them ahead of Tudor FC.

The third division title is still up for grabs as the two contenders both lost, the first defeat of the season for Suffolk Punch who went down 4-1 at Harleston Town Reserves.

They remain two points adrift of Gt Yarmouth Town Hall who lost 2-1 at Lacon Arms.

Spexhall Reserves remain fourth after a 4-0 win at Westhall while Blundeston Magpies got a point after a 3-3 draw with Kirkley & Pakefield B.

The final game saw a second win of the season for Factory Arms who beat White Horse Seltic Reserves 3-2.
