KING’S Lynn & District Sunday League


The England’s Hope juggernaut simply isn’t showing signs of slowing down as they recorded their 23rd straight league win, 7-2 away over Flitcham Bell.

Connor Parnell and Dan Fuller scored for Bell, but two is rarely enough against a side that have scored 51 in 11.

Saying that, Hope had only conceded six in 10 before this game, so to score two is some effort.

Hope goals: Neil Goodbourn 2, Michael Chow 2, Ricky Gunns, Sam Whyborn and Joe Whyborn.

CSKA still lurk menacingly in third place after a hard-fought 5-2 away win over a well drilled Dersingham Social Club.

Max Mattless, Lewis Thompson 2 and Aaron McKenna 2 scored the all-important goals for CSKA with Billy Eastwood and Sam Peck scoring for Dersy Social.

In the ‘other side ut river’ derby it was home side West Lynn who prevailed 2-0 against their nearest and dearest neighbours, Clenchwarton Victory. Wanderers nabbed the win courtesy of Gary Halliday and Connor Jackson.

FANG stay second after seeing off free-scoring Old White Bell 3-7. Jack Gould got things going with a hat trick for FANG. Jo Malby 2, Sam Hanslip and Steve Pearson scored the others. Bell goals: John Murphy, Justin Whitwell and Justin Lee.


The wheels continue to wobble for league leaders CR Eastern who suffered a 4-1 reverse at CSKA Young Boys.

Young Boys claimed their scalp through goals from Claudio Cerqueira 2, Joe Reed and Tom Brazil, Kai Neve scoring a consolation for CR.

CR Eastern remain top but the title is now out of their hands as Elm and Heacham can both overtake CR with games in hand.

Elm stay second after a massive 1-0 win over near neighbours MacMillan, with the winner scored by Kensey Carter.

Shouldham and Tydd St. Mary played out a “Desmond” in drawing 2-2. Ryan Jones bagged himself a deuce with Adam Warner and Jamie Langley cancelling out those strikes for Shouldham.

West Winch William Burt lost a narrow game, 1-3, at home to CSKA Reserves, with Cameron Paterson scoring their goal. CSKA got the win through Joe Lee, Connor Ratcliffe and Tom Dack.

Heacham remain in third after a comprehensive 7-1 home win over Necton. Scott Deadman led the charge with a hat trick and Josh Everett scored twice. Laurie Hibbard and Barry Chilvers scored the others.

Filipe Apolinario scored Necton’s consolation.

March Saracens got back to winning ways with a 4-0 win over Three Holes, scoring through Alan Irvine 2, James Smith and Ash Taylor.
