Sheringham lead the Anglian Combination championship race by one point after the latest round of results.

Blofield United blew their hopes of closing the gap on the Premier Division leaders when they suffered a shock 3-2 defeat at home to Beccles.

But Loddon did Blofield a favour by drawing 0-0 at Sheringham. Had Blofield won they would have been four points behind the Shannocks with two games in hand.

Instead they slipped further adrift as goals from Sam Barham, Neil Hurren and Kevin Waterman gave the lowly visitors all three points.
