PUBLISHED: 10:33 29 October 2010

Notley’s Lowestoft & District League round up THE Suffolk Primary Cup took centre stage at the weekend with the league’s representation being reduced to seven following the regionalised second round.

The biggest winners were Waveney Reserves who defeated Third Division Southwold Town Reserves 6-1. Almost emulating that score were DK Consultants who racked up a 5-1 win against fellow Second Division side Telecom Rovers.

Mutford & Wrentham were 4-1 winners against Bungay Town A whilst Waveney Gunners had a solid 2-0 win against Lowestoft International.

The cup also produced a nine-goal and a seven-goal thriller. FC Eastport from the third tier beat Beccles Caxton Reserves from the second tier 5-4 and Spexhall Reserves won through 4-3 against Third Division Oxford Arms Reserves.

Kirkley & Pakefield B put up a good showing away at a strong AFC Hoxne Reserves side, twice hitting the woodwork, before eventually losing 2-0, while Carlton Rangers failed to raise a side for their scheduled tie against Crusaders and as such Crusaders will be awarded the tie.

On to league affairs and Oxford Arms remain the only first division side boasting a perfect record following their sixth straight win, this time a 4-0 victory against Pakefield Re-United.

Hearts of Oak dropped their first points in being held 2-2 at Barsham but did fight back from 2-0 down with Kris Atkinson and Luke Falliaze scoring.

Another team to fight back was Norton who found themselves 2-0 down at half-time in their match against Town Hall. A stirring start to the second half saw them score three time inside six minutes and they went on to win 4-3.

Pot Black, another side with many players missing, picked up the points following their 4-1 win at Corton & Ole Frank.

Spexhall, who are in fine form, won for the third time this season 4-0 against Corton White Horse Seltic, while the final game in the division saw a good 5-0 win for Kirkley & Pakefield A against Blundeston Magpies.

With all the Primary Cup games there was a limited number of league games in the second and third divisions.

Norton Athletic Reserves picked up their first point of the campaign following their 1-1 draw at Ellingham, Gary Crisp the scorer for Norton while Earsham lost to a solitary Waveney A strike.

The Third Division sees new leaders in Marquis of Lorne, who head the table on goal difference following their 10-0 win against Lowestoft Albion and they are joined on 15 points by Corton White Horse Seltic Reserves who won 3-2 against Harleston Town Reserves.

Blundeston Magpies Reserves edged a high scoring affair 4-3 at Royal Oak while the points were shared at Westhall as they drew 2-2 with Factory Arms.
