Cromer Town finally had something to smile about on Saturday after struggling since being relegated to Division Two of the Anglian Combination.

The Crabs won their first league game of the season, beating Poringland Wanderders 4-2 at Cabbell Park.

Cromer shone brightly on a sunny afternoon and were good value for their home win and three much needed points, which lifted them off the foot of the table.

Goals from Glen Marguez, Emiliano Quade Camala, a penalty from Jack Crane and a great strike from Bafode Carvalho secured the victory.

Before the weekend Cromer had taken just one point from their opening six games, and also bowed out of the Norfolk Junior Cup at the hands of village outfit Longham. They will now be attempting to prove the result is no flash in the pan when they entertain second placed Sprowston Athletic on Saturday (2pm).

Chris Smith scored a hat-trick as Holt United moved back to the top of the table with a 5-2 win at Mattishall Reserves. Aaeron Moss and Liam Walsh were also on target for the Owls, who visit Loddon tomorrow.

Sheringham’s solid start to the season in the Premier Division continued when they won 1-0 at Acle United, with Antoni Fawkes scoring the only goal. The Shannocks take a break from league action this Saturday to visit Mattishall in the Mummery Cup.

North Walsham Town picked up their first points of the season in Division One in midweek when they beat fellow strugglers Reepham Town 4-1 at Greens Road (Alan Johnson 2, Alex Fitzgerald, Luke Everson). The timely success followed eight successive defeats, many by large margins.

Stalham Town were beaten 1-0 at home by Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves in the same section.

On Saturday Stalham host Aylsham, who were without a game at the weekend, while North Walsham have a day off.
