Notley's Lowestoft & District League round-up

IT'S all change at the top of the first division following this week's results as early pacesetters Wrentham had the points stolen by Magpies as Blundeston recorded a terrific 3-1 victory.

Magpies took the lead through Lewis Crowe, but were pegged back by Wrentham in the second half.

But two goals from Jason Reid gave Magpies all three points and moves them up to fifth in the table.

Wrentham are now headed by Kirkley and Pakefield A who won 2-0 at bottom side Oxford Arms, to make it three wins from three games.

Pot Black followed up last week's fine point with three more this week as they scored a 3-1 success over a Spexhall side who remain pointless.

Waveney Reserves picked up their first points as they eased to a 5-0 win over Sole Bay Reserves, with braces for Ray Winney and Scott Jermy and a strike for Ian Hunter.

Meanwhile, Beccles Caxton were the day's biggest winners as they strolled to a 10-0 success over AFC Bayfields.

Barsham who have been unlucky in losing both of their opening games to last minute strikes were left inactive due to the surprise call off of champions Hearts of Oak who could not raise a side.

Norton Athletic, who have a 100pc record along with K&P A, were in Norfolk Junior Cup action where they faced a Norton Walsham Town Reserves side who had not lost a league game for 42 matches, however Norton excelled and went through 5-1.

The second division already looks like it will be intriguing as every team has already lost.

Early leaders Hopton White Hart went down 2-0 at Waveney Gunners whilst second placed Crusaders lost 2-1 at LIFC.

Tudor FC are up to third after their 5-0 win over bottom side Oxford Arms Reserves.

Ole Frank netted a second win as they beat Bungay Town A 5-1 as did Oulton Broad and Notley's Reserves who recorded a 4-1 success at Corton A.

Pakefield Re-United gained their first three point haul with a fine 4-2 win at Ellingham.

The third division saw a shock result as Great Yarmouth Town Hall who have been scoring for fun were held to a 1-1 draw by Waveney A.

Marquis of Lorne are now third in Division Three following their 5-1 victory at Spexhall Reserves.

Lake Lothing are hot on their heels in fourth after their fine 4-2 win at new boys Kirkley and Pakefield B whilst Earsham gained a 4-0 win in game against Westhall.
