With a midweek win over Ludham 2-1 and a 1-1 draw at home against Briston, North Walsham A moved into second spot in the Slater & Frith Division One table behind run away leaders Gimingham who were again amongst the goals this time hitting seven away at North Walsham Old Boys who netted twice themselves.

Third-placed Coltishall had to come from behind to beat their hosts Horning, for who Jonathan Flower and Richard Mileham gave them an early two-goal lead only for Ross Joy to net four times for the visitors with Joe Woodcock getting the other to round off a 5-2 score line.

Runton won 3-0 at Hickling. Ludham, after a hard struggle finally came out on top be a 3-2 margin at home to East Ruston and Corpusty eased their relegation worries with a 2-0 home win over Aldborough Lions.

In a top-of-the-table clash in the Wayford Nurseries Division Two at Haisboro Athletic where Worstead were the visitors, it look to be heading for an away win until a Paul Hollis strike reduced the arrears and a last minute penalty from Tom Gilbert secured a point for the home side, as a result of this only goal difference separates the sides with Haisboro having two games in hand.
