In-form KLSC FC currently find themselves in third place and they inflicted a 4-1 defeat on Gayton A.

Thomas Wagg found the net twice for Soccer Club but that is now six league defeats in a row for Gayton.

Marshland Saints and Denver also played out a 2-2 draw with goal scorers including Callum Rodgers, Lewis Sparkes and Liam Cox.

Division Two has truly turned into a two-horse race between Reffley and Ingoldisthorpe for the league title. Reffley are currently top and convincingly beat Terrington 3-0; Jack Cropley scored a brace to add to Charlie Dungey’s 17th of the season.

Ingoldisthorpe hosted local rivals Dersingham Development and claimed three points with a 6-2 win.

KLSC FC Reserves and Clenchwarton played out a closely contested 3-3 draw which saw the oranges climb back up to fifth in the table.

Two goals from Matthew Pearson helped Castle Rising keep a glimmer of hope that they can catch the top two.

His side beat West Winch 3-2 with Cameron Sayer and Aaron Walker finding the consolation goals for Winch.

The Woottons are proving to be one of the best spirited and determined sides in the league, but their form continues to struggle.

This weekend they were comfortably beaten by Docking Reserves for who Jack Hawkins scored five.

Docking Development were also in action but on the wrong end of an 8-1 score line to Ingoldisthorpe Reserves. Kai Mayes and Alfie Royle each scored a double for Thorpe.

Docking will be hoping to get back to winning ways this weekend when they host Weeting Saxon Reserves.
