Notley's Lowestoft & District League round-up

AFTER most teams have completed two games in the three division Lowestoft Saturday league, a number of sides are already sharing the lead at the top of the respective tables.

Waveney Reserves and Norton Athletic both head up Division One after two wins from two, and a similar goal difference.

Four goals from last season's leading goalscorer in division one, Ray Winney, gave Waveney a 6-2 away win at K&P A with other goals from Paul Jones and Dean Hurren.
