The Ben Smith Memorial Cup Final on May Day bank holiday morning will be between the holders

Castle Acre Swifts and Dereham Taverners.

In the semi-final, Swifts won 4-0 at Morley Village. The other semi-final was not played as Marham Wanderers could not raise a team, thereby giving Dereham a walk over.

In the only match in Division 1, Tacolneston in their last match beat Shipdham 5-0 to go back to the top of table. This means that Castle Acre must now win their remaining game at Mulbarton Wanderers A to ensure a record fourth consecutive League Championship.

In Division 2, Hethersett Athletic move up to fourth after winning by the odd goal of three at Castle Acre Swifts Res.

In Division 3, Walsingham Utd edged out Northwold 4-2. Scarning Utd Res ran up the highest score of the day in beating Necton Res 11-2 in Division 4 while Shipdham Res beat Narborough Res 2-1.
