Notley's Lowestoft & District League report

CONGRATULATIONS to both Ellingham and Norton Athletic Reserves who both reached the semi final of the Norfolk Primary Cup last weekend.

Ellingham came through a seven goal thriller by the odd goal and Norton came away from Thetford Athletic with a 3-1 success thanks to goals from Jon Green and a Gary Crisp brace.

Onto the league action and Hearts of Oak are the new leaders of the first division as they ran out 7-0 winners over Sole Bay thanks to goals from Lee Fisher 2, Jon Williams 2, Micki Williams, Darren Boyd and Vinny Terry.

Norton are second after being inactive and Kirkley & Pakefield's title hopes took another blow as they lost again this time 1-0 to Pot Black thanks to a goal from Steve Collins.

Waveney Youth edged through their match with Oxford Arms 3-2 to stay fourth and fast improving Wrentham are fifth after beating Carlton Rangers 5-1. The final fixture saw Spexhall emerge with three points following their 3-0 success at CDS Waveney.

The second division sees the top two pull away as Hearts of Oak Reserves defeated Royal Standard 4-1 and they remain one point ahead of Barsham who ran out 9-1 winners over Suffolk Punch. The top two have a game in hand over third placed Corton White Horse Seltic who beat Crusaders 3-1. They have leapfrogged Blundeston Magpies who slipped to a single goal defeat to Oulton Broad & Notley's Reserves.

Waveney Gunners' surge up the table continues as they also won by a single goal at Pakefield Re-United. Lacon Arms picked up another point as they held Caxton Reserves to a 1-1 draw but they are still second bottom and in danger at the foot of the table.

The third division saw the leaders Ole Frank with a free week and this allowed Blundeston Plough and Hopton White Hart to close the gap courtesy of their 3-1 win over Earsham and 2-1 at Spexhall Reserves respectively.

Bungay Town A are now fifth thanks to their 3-0 win over LIFC. Factory Arms picked up only their second win of the season 2-0 over Westhall 2007 and this leaves CDS Waveney Reserves at the foot of the division as they went down 3-1 to Marquis of Lorne. There was a nine goal thriller at Dip Farm where Oxford Arms Reserves emerged 5-4 winners over Blundeston Magpies Reserves.
