They say all good things come to an end, and that was certainly the case for England’s Hope who, after 25 straight league wins spanning over three seasons, finally tasted defeat in the league.

Chilvers claimed a vital win in the title race by beating seemingly invincible England’s Hope 3-2.

It may not be enough to swing the race back in Chilvers’ favour, but it certainly gives them and CSKA belief in the title race.

Hope were not at their best but still managed to push Chilvers all the way with the game locked at 2-2 before Kev Leggett popped up with a delightful winner from some distance.

Michael Chow and ex-Chilvers frontman Neil Goodbourn scored for Hope with Chilvers’ other two goals coming through Joe Jackson and James Tricks.

CSKA refuse to throw in the title towel and secured another three points with a professional performance seeing off Clenchwarton 4-0 in the cage at Thomas Clarkson.

Kai Ruff 2, Dave Abbott and Nathan Watson secured the points.

West Lynn travelled to Southery to take on Horsepigs and shared the spoils in an entertaining 3-3 draw. West Lynn can thank Dean Twaite-Smith 2 and Sam Garrod for their point, whilst Horsepigs will be toasting Dan Coates, Robbie Eves and John Murphy.

Sutton St. James had the pleasure of a full squad for the first time in months and took full advantage with a 5-2 home win over Flitcham Bell.

Sutton raced into an early 4-0 lead before adding a fifth after the break before Flitcham threatened to mount a comeback with two quick fire goals, but Sutton held firm.

Joe Johnson and George Groves both notched twice. Justin Bone added a solitary strike.

Danny Child smashed one home from the spot before Connor Parnell added a second, moments later.


Elm stayed in the title race with an enthralling 5-4 win over an improving William Burt side. Burt notched through Matty Gollands, Jamie Hardy, Kevin Scott and Adam Ledley. Elm goals: Elliot Vahnsburgh 2, Bill Ryan, Anth Horn and Ryan Brazil.

Heacham remain in contention and will go top overall should they win their games in hand, thanks to an 8-1 win over Three Holes. Jack Dougal scored for Holes but Heacham romped home thanks to Tom Hawkins 2, Sam Pishorn 2, Josh Everett, Chris Smith, Scott Deadman and Laurie Hibberd.

CR Eastern dropped vital points, but stay top of the league, after a ‘Desmond’ with Tydd St Mary. Ryan Jones and Tim Lowe notched for the improving Tydd and CR secured a point through Connor Walker and Josh Murray.

MacMillan and Shouldham also drew 2-2 in a highly competitive game. Wayne Morton and Gary Green scored for MacMillan with Dan Harper and Rob O’Donnell for Shouldham.

Necton made the 65-mile round trip to CSKA Reserves and got their petrol money’s worth by coming back with a 7-4 win! CSKA scored through Toby Killingsworth and a Tom Dack hat-trick.

Necton re-found their scoring touch emphatically. Goals: Mark Brock 3, Jamie Titmarsh 2, Andrew Westhorpe and Callum Lawlor.
