The last remaining fixture took place on Sunday, with CSKA edging Clenchwarton 4-2 to top the group.

The result also sees Clenchwarton qualify in second place.

Dave Abbott notched a brace with further goals from Jesse Hemmings and Max Mattless. Dan Chapman and Lee Dix scored for Victory.


It was billed as a potentially title-defining clash as Chilvers made the short trip across North Lynn to play FANG but Chilvers blitzed their opposition with an 11-0 win.

Joe Jackson led the frontline with a six-goal salvo, Danny Jezeph 4 and Kyle Plumb the other scorers.

Englands Hope remain top with a 100 per cent record after brushing past a never-say-die Flitcham Bell, who remain rooted to the bottom with four defeats.

The 14-1 scoreline emphasised the quality Hope have in front of goal and will surely lead to an interesting title race.

Dan Blackmuir scored for Bell, but goals from Neil Goodbourn 5, Michael Chow 4, Ben Jimson 3 and Sam Whyborn 2 saw Hope remain top of the league.

Old White Bell have crept up to fourth and are the league’s second top scorers after beating Tilney Green Lions 7-3 away. Jordi Scott-Henson, Gavin Cooper and Evaldes Pinelis scored for the Lions but ‘Bell claimed the points through Joe Allen 4, Matt Weeds and who else but John Murphy 2.


CR Eastern remain top of the table and the team to beat after an 11-1 demolition job on CSKA Young Boys. Goals, Young Boys: Harry Griffin; CR Eastern: Ashley Prosper 4, Curtis Morais 3, Connor Walker 2, Daniel Kerry and Brandon Wilmore.

Second-spot March Saracens seem to be putting last season’s troubles behind them after brushing past new boys West Winch William Burt 15-0. Goals: John Bugg and Ash Taylor hat-tricks, a brace for Andrew Abbott, plus Jordan Mason, James Schulmann, Aaron Elmore, James Hazel, Will Bruce and Dan Smethurst.

Heacham sit third, level on points with March but with a game in hand, after a hard fought win over previously unbeaten Elm.

Elm took the lead before Heacham led 2-1, with Elm equalising on the stroke of half-time. Heacham went 4-2 ahead, only for Elm to pull level with 10 minutes remaining. Hero Sam Pishorn struck the winner with five minutes to go. Goals, Elm: Richard Hunt, Anth Horn and Leon Murphy 2, Heacham: Martin Gibbs, Tom Williams, Tom Hawkins and Fed Pezella.

Necton are now fourth in their debut season after a classy 8-2 win at Tydd St Mary. Jamie Taylor scored twice for Tydd, but the 65-mile round trip was made worth it for Necton by goals from Nathan Bailey 5, James Askew, Callum Lawler and Mitchell Thomson.

Three Holes edged out a close game with Shouldham 2-0, by virtue of a brace from Dan Cowell.

CSKA Reserves and Macmillan played out a tough 1-1 draw at the Thomas Clarkson. CSKA: Josh Pearce, Macmillan: Ian Bootie.
