THE Notley's Lowestoft & District league was almost a complete washout this week with just five of the scheduled fixtures surviving and two of those because the fixtures were reversed to village pitches.

THE Notley's Lowestoft & District league was almost a complete washout this week with just five of the scheduled fixtures surviving and two of those because the fixtures were reversed to village pitches.

There was a setback in the Division One title aspirations of Kirkley & Pakefield A, who went down 2-1 at a resurgent Wrentham thanks to goals from Chris McMaster and Stuart Holland.

Second-placed Hearts of Oak are now just a point behind leaders Norton as they smashed in 14 unanswered goals at a poor Carlton Rangers and could go top this week as Norton are inactive.

Just one fixture survived in the second division as Norton Reserves and Pakefield Re-United reversed this fixture and shared the points in a 1-1 draw as Gary Crisp rescued a point for Norton.

The final unbeaten record went in division three as Ole Frank reversed their fixture to Hopton where the village based side edged home 3-2 to keep their promotion challenge alive. The final clash at Earsham saw Blundeston Magpies Reserves emerge with the three points courtesy of a 3-1 win.

This weekend sees both Ellingham and Norton Athletic Reserves in Norfolk Primary Cup quarter final action and good luck to both teams.
