The reigning champions of North East Norfolk League Slater and Frith Division One, Buxton have dropped only three points this season, but their hopes of retaining their title hinge on converting a serious backlog of fixtures into points.

The reigning champions of North East Norfolk League Slater and Frith Division One, Buxton have dropped only three points this season, but their hopes of retaining their title hinge on converting a serious backlog of fixtures into points.

Buxton have already beaten the current league leaders East Ruston who have leaked six points so far.

So the remaining clash between these two could decide the outcome of the title race, writes Roy Webster.

On Saturday Buxton chalked up a 3-0 (Abbs, Callow, Rust-Andrews) victory over North Walsham A to climb into second spot behind Ruston who scored late to earn a vital 3-2 (Woodhouse 2, Stride) victory over Mundesley.

Erpingham have now dropped seven points after sharing two goals with neighbours Corpusty, the respective marksmen Dancester and Seymour.

In Wayford Nurseries Division Two, Aldborough who crashed out of the Norfolk Primary Cup 6-2 to Lynn Docklands, have dropped only three league points so far but they too face a backlog of games and will need to work hard to catch Horning who head the table with only two defeats to their name after hammering Happisburgh Reserves 6-2 (Mileham 3, Bailey 2, Dack).

Bodham's chances of promotion were damaged by a 2-1 defeat by Felmingham whose scorers were Fox and Davis with Patterson replying.

Coltishall may be out of contention following their eight-goal draw with Briston, as may Runton who were 5-3 losers to North Walsham OB Reserves whose scorers were Brown 2, Blackwell, Potter, og.

Buxton Reserves may yet escape the drop after defeating Aylsham A 2-1 while in Knights Trophies Division Three.

Holt A remain top with a one-goal victory over Corpusty Reserves.

Cromer YOB chalked up the highest scoreline of the day, 11-2 over Blakeney, their scorers Tyrell, Buxton, Warnes, Mayes, Stanforth with two apiece plus an og.

They maintain second place ahead of Stalham A who dropped two points from a 1-1 draw with Mundesley Reserves.
