Gimingham closer to league title

Norwich Premier Security NEN League Notes

Despite dropping two points at home to Ludham, Gimingham moved closer to retaining the Slater & Frith Division One title, albeit they were held to a 3-3 draw as their nearest challengers Coltishall suffered two reverses.

First came a midweek home defeat by Ludham. On target for the visitors were Carl O'Conner (2), Mark Fairs and Andrew Clarke with Jacob Bradbury and Joe Woodcock replying for Colts.

Then a brace from Horning's Ricky Mileham inflicted a second defeat inside four days on Coltishall and virtually gifted the trophy to Gimingham.

Hickling recorded their first league win since the opening day of the season when at Briston they netted six times. On target for them were Matthew Bone with a hat-trick, Dairo Flores (2) and Adam Mayhew, with the home side netting three themselves.

Aldborough Lions recorded a solid 3-0 home win over Runton, and East Ruston were 6-2 home winners over Corpusty.

At the top in the Wayford Nurseries Division Two, Worstead and Haisboro Athletic met midweek and ended all square, a result that favours Haisboro who, level on points at the top, still have two games in hand. Both sides won their weekend games, Haisboro 4-1 at Holt A, Worstead 5-3 at Lyng.
