Watton Utd 1, North Walsham Town 5

Walsham put in a much-improved performance to come away with a convincing 5-1 victory to rise to fourth place in the Premier Division.

Town took the lead midway through the half when Fitzgerald's visionary pass found Dale Wilton, who stole in at the far post to steer the ball home.

Watton went level when a free-kick was not cleared properly. A dip in the performance followed, but Walsham regained their superiority and took a deserved lead into the break. David Hinton picked up a loose ball 20 yards out, shifted the ball and then unleashed a left-footed shot into the top corner.
