Sunday League

With the obligatory January downpour seeing off four games, there was still action across two counties and six games.


CSKA hosted FANG in a battle for second place and it was CSKA who took advantage in that race with an excellent performance in a 5-1 thumping.

Tom Cunliffe scored for FANG but goals from Max Mattless, Lewis Thompson, Nathan Watson and a Dave Abbott pair gave CSKA the all-important three points.

Flitcham Bell claimed their maiden league win of the season in emphatic style, seeing off Sutton St. James 7-1. Sutton also replace Flitcham at the foot of the table.

Will Kirkham scored for Sutton but goals from Connor Parnell 4, Sam Hewitt 2 and Ross Woodhouse gave ‘Bell a vital win in their bid to beat the drop.

Old White Bell remain in fifth after a close 3-1 win over Clenchwarton Victory.

Rob Framingham bagged his second of the season for Clenchwarton but goals from Marcus Cumberbatch, Joe Allen and Justin Lee claimed the points for White Bell.

Dersingham put last week’s cup disappointment behind them with a gluttonous 9-3 win over Tilney Green Lions.

There were hat-tricks for Anton Ely, Gary Bowman and Nathan Branch, which secured the emphatic win for Dersy.

Jason Chilton 2 and Nathan Welsby scored in reply for Lions.


Only two games made it through the weather in Division Two, and it provided two big wins.

CR Eastern retained top spot in the division with a 0-8 away win over William Burt. William Burt, despite only having 10, put up a brave fight and it wasn’t until late on that CR went goal crazy.

CR Eastern scored through Curtis Morais 4, Ashley Prosper 2, Paul Moore and Daniel Kerry.

Elm took advantage of the call offs and leapfrogged Shouldham and their opponents Necton, into fourth place. Necton boast a formidable strike force but could only score once in a tense first half, through Blair Cameron.

Elm went in 2-1 up at the break and scored four more in a crazy 20-minute spell at the start of the second half.

Elm scored through hat-tricks for Richard Hunt and Kensey Carter.
