England’s Hope moved to within a point of the Division One title with their ninth win in nine league games after a 3-1 win over a resilient CSKA Emneth.
Max Mattless got Emneth on the scoresheet but the Hope steam train carried on rolling towards the station at League Title Parkway thanks to a hat-trick from Joe Whyborn.
FANG are the only team who can catch Hope and hang on in there by the skin of their teeth after a 7-3 away win over Horsepigs. John Murphy keeps on showing Canaries Josh and Jacob how to do it with two more goals. Rob Eves scored Pigs’ third.
FANG goals: Tommy Rix hat-trick, a pair from Joseph Malby, Olly Parker and Alex Vincent’s first of the season.
Burt and Chilvers played out a ‘Desmond’ in a game very much in the ‘end of season’ mould.
It was 0-0 for 80 minutes then went goal crazy as Danny Jezeph notched twice for Chilvers. Curtis Senter and a Sam Garrod beauty kept Burt in third place.
Sutton St James confirmed their promotion with a 4-0 win over Wisbech Social with goals from Jake Clitheroe 2, Stuart Easey and Matthew Rose.
Sutton need just two more points to land the Division Two title from nearest challengers Flitcham Bell as they stay on course for a debut season double.
Tilney can still catch Flitcham for the second promotion spot but need a minor miracle.
Tilney saw off CR Eastern 3-2 in a ding-dong affair with Jason Chilton, Adam Key and Robert Condon; Shane Grimes and goal machine Curtis Morais scoring for CR Eastern.
Farmers Arms won their first game since November 23, and emphatically so, 6-0, and condemned their hosts, Tydd St Mary, to relegation.
Farmers Arms praised Tydd for battling to the end, despite only having 10 men. Farmers Arms scored through Kris Rigg 3, Liam Starr 2 and Chad Barratt; their Man of the Match was Jon Adams.
West Lynn confirmed their promotion with a 5-0 win at River Lane. Andrew bagged a treble with Gary Halliday and Harry Sands also scoring. They sit three points clear of Dersingham in the title race and both teams have three games remaining.
Dersingham have a superior goal difference than West Lynn by the small margin of just three goals, and this was helped by their 13-1 win over Fleet.
Dersingham still need two points for promotion and are in the thick of the title race.
Dersingham scorers: Sean Ely 7, Anton Ely 3, Perry Cracknell twice with Nathan Mitchell adding the 13th. Ryan Ingle notched for Fleet.
