THE race for the Sterry Cup was turned upside down by a league ruling that gave Sheringham's rivals Blofield a boost.

Their 0-0 draw with AFC Norwich must be replayed because their opponents fielded a suspended player.

Tuesday night saw Anglian Combination Premier Division leaders the Shannocks win 2-1 at home to Sprowston Athletic while Blofield thrashed bottom club Holt 8-0 on their own pitch. Sheringham, with one game left, have 61 points from 29 games to Blofield's 56 from 27. Even if Sheringham win at Brandon on Saturday, three Blofield wins would give the Beavers the title by a point.

Also on Tuesday, North Walsham lost 4-1 at Beccles Town, Cromer won 4-1 at home to Dersingham while Wroxham Reserves drew 2-2 at home to AFC Norwich.
