Notley's Lowestoft & District League round up

PRIDE of place this week goes to second division side Gt Yarmouth Town Hall, who reached the final of the Norfolk Primary Cup on Saturday following their 3-1 win against Thetford Rovers Reserves.

The league sent out their congratulations to the side this week for their success, and this will be the second time in three seasons that the league will have had a representative after Ellingham reached the final two years ago.

The final will be played on Friday, April 9 at Dereham's Aldiss Park against Old Hunstanton.

In division one leaders Norton Athletic had to battle back from 2-1 down at the break to eventually beat fifth placed Spexhall 4-2, with scorers Danny Hoadley (penalty), two from Andy Green and player manager Steve Hak.

Second placed Waveney Reserves bounced back from defeat last week to beat eighth placed Kirkley & Pakefield A 5-1, after they were 1-0 down at the interval.

Third placed Barsham were given the points as 11th placed Pot Black failed to raise a side for the scheduled clash. Fourth placed Oxford Arms game at first from bottom Mutford & Wrentham was postponed.

Sixth placed Hearts of Oak drew 2-2 at Normanston Park with seventh placed Ole Frank, while ninth placed Corton White Horse Seltic beat tenth placed Blundeston Magpies 3-1.

In the battle of the top two in the second division, league leaders AFC Star drew 0-0 with second placed Pakefield Re-United.

Suffolk Punch stay third after a last-gasp 4-3 away win at 12th placed Norton Athletic Reserves. The home side had looked to salvage a late draw as they made it 3-3 in the 92nd minute but then conceded an even later winner. Norton scorers were Gary Crisp, Dan Robinson and Sam Brackenbury.

Fifth placed Ellingham drew 3-3 away at tenth placed Sole Bay United Reserves, sixth placed Corton A had a good 4-1 win over seventh-placed Hopton.

Eighth placed Crusaders lost 1-3 at home to an improving Lowestoft International, who are now ninth, while 11th placed Tudor drew 1-1 with bottom of the table Harleston Town Reserves.

In Division three, just three games were placed as the John Moore Shield quarter finals took centre stage. Game of the division was at Dip Farm, where seventh placed Norman Warrior led 5-2 against Spexhall Reserves, but the village side dramatically hit back to win 6-5 and move into fourth place.

Fifth placed Kirkley & Pakefield B slipped to a 1-4 home reversal against tenth placed Westhall, while bottom of the table Carlton Rangers had a fine 5-2 home win over Blundeston Magpies Reserves.

In the John Moore Shield quarter finals, league leaders Waveney Gunners bounced back from last week's league defeat to move into the semi finals with a 6-1 victory over Corton White Horse Seltic Reserves.

They will be joined by second placed Waveney A, who beat Mutford & Wrentham Reserves by the same 6-1 scoreline. Third placed Earsham join them in the last four after a 3-1 away win at Factory Arms, while Ron Bonnor's Marquis of Lorne make up the quartet after a fine 4-1 home win over Oxford Arms Reserves.
