North Walsham were flying in the first half of the season, finishing top of the Martin & Acock Premier Division at Christmas.

The second half saw a more varied performance, but ably led by captain Nicky Batch and manager Mike Bartram, a hard-fought end to the season saw them in second place, with top goal scorer Ellie Vanlint.

They were close behind the eventual winners, Evergreens.
