AFC Lynn have all but sealed the North West Norfolk League, sponsored by Novus, title after building up a near-unassailable late season lead.

The leaders are six points ahead of championship rivals Terrington with just two matches remaining, AFC winning 7-1 at Redgate Rangers Reserves on Saturday to confirm their superiority.

On target for the visitors in Division One were experienced striker Neil Goodbourn, John Marlow a brace, Ben Oliver, Royce Rawlings and Andrew Wood a brace.

This followed a tight 3-2 midweek win at home to Ingoldisthorpe, with the hosts having to come back from being 2-1 down at half-time. Home goals came from Goodbourn (2) and Andrew Wood.

Kieran Herbert and Martynas Rope replied for seventh-position Ingoldisthorpe.

Both the AFC and Terrington – who had no weekend fixture – sides have played 22 out of a maximum of 24 games.

Lynn have 62 points and a goal difference of 100; meanwhile, Terrington are currently on 56 points and have a goal difference of 59.

Terrington would need to overhaul 41 goals in their final two games, a near-impossible task, particularly as they travel to AFC Lynn tomorrow.

Snettisham have already sewn up the Division Two title.
