Heacham ‘A’ 3 Denver 0

Denver failed to reproduce their league form and, after missing a number of good chances in the first half, capitulated tamely after the break against a side they had beaten convincingly earlier in the season.

“We were missing important players and we failed to take our chances in the first half,” said Denver manager Larry Halpin. “But the most disappointing thing was the attitude of some of my players after we went 2-0 down.

“We face the same opposition in our next league game and I will be making changes because another performance like this and we can kiss goodbye to our genuine chances of winning the title.”

Dersingham Rovers 5 West Winch 0

Despite the difficult weather conditions with a strong wind blowing across the pitch, the home side ran out comfortable winners.

Rovers started the match brightly and took an early lead through the prolific Cam Smeaton and this seemed to settle down the home side who started to pass the ball around well. More goals followed by Ben Welch, Will Woodhouse and a second for Smeaton to send Dersingham in at half-time 4-0.

The second half turned out to be a scrappy affair mainly due to the weather, but the home side remained in control throughout with Smeaton completing his hat-trick.

This was a good victory for the Rovers to keep them pushing for the title with a very good all round performance.
