Ten games brought 78 goals between them this weekend, and that figure includes two teams who didn’t score!


CSKA FC are really proving themselves a tough team to beat this season. They have started this season facing last season’s top two and came away pointless, but that doesn’t tell the whole story.

Last week it was a last minute 2-1 defeat to England’s Hope and this week it was a close 4-3 defeat to free-scoring FANG, who welcomed back pocket rocket Alex Vincent.

Vincent made his intentions clear for the season with a hat-trick, supported in the goals column by Ryan Juby.

CSKA battled hard; their goals: Max Matless, Jack Newman and Jake Ogden.

Clenchwarton finished bottom last year with four points, and after two games have improved on that tally already!

Adam Mason gave Victory a lead they never relinquished against a battling Flitcham Bell side. Clenchwarton added goals through Josh Thurston, Cameron Mitchell and Matty Yates with Eddie Cottington getting Bell on the score sheet.

Old White Bell’s John Murphy still continues to show Josh and Jacob how it’s done with a four-goal haul in a 5-5 draw with Dersingham Social Club.

Goal machine Anton Ely showed he has what it takes in Division One with a brace for Dersingham. Their other goals came from Timmy Pepper, Harry Nash and Nathan Branch. Rob Eves notched the other goal for ‘Bell.

Tilney kept up their 100 per cent start to the season with a 5-1 win over a patched-up Sutton St James.

Sutton had a depleted squad but Tilney proved too strong with Ricky Papworth bagging a three-piece, supported by Adam Key and Kai Scott-Henson. Matty Claydon bagged a consolation.

Chilvers ran riot over sorry Burt with an emphatic 11-0 away win. Danny Jezeph led the way with a double hat-trick. Billy Smith and Ben Oliver both notched braces with Joe Jackson scoring once.

England’s Hope’s current winning streak stretches back to early 2014!

An 8-1 win over new boys West Lynn keeps Hope in the title race and they remain THE team to beat. Will Goldberg scored for West Lynn; and a rampant Hope side scored through Michael Chow 2, Ben Norman 2, Paul Richardson, Justin Uddin, Joe Whyborn and Ben Jimson.


March Saracens turned their form around after last week with a morale-boosting 2-0 home win over Necton.

Will Burke and Ed Penteney scored in their first win of the season.

Last week they conceded seven, this week they scored seven, as CSKA Young Boys found their winning touch.

Three Holes made a game of it, scoring through a Dan Hempson hat-trick and a Matthew Harrison strike.

Young Boys claimed their maiden win through Aidan Rouse 6 and James Bunning.

CSKA Reserves went 1-0 and 2-1 up when hosting Elm in a Cambridgeshire derby. Elm fought back to lead 4-3. The game opened up as CSKA tried to claw it back but Elm found the net with ease.

Goals, Elm: hat-tricks accredited to Anth Horn, Richard Hunt and Kensey Carter.

CSKA: Joe Lee 2, Toby Killingsworth and a halfway line scorcher from Danny Setchell.

MacMillan pushed one of the title favourites all the way before succumbing 3-1, late on, to CR Eastern.

Lyndon Woods notched for MacMillan with Ashley Prosper 2 and Curtis Morais securing the win.

Next weekend sees County Cup action for the Division One sides on their quest for the Carrow Road Final. There is a full league programme for Division Two as every side received a bye.
