Reepham Town 4, Sprowston Wanderers 1
A THIRD league triumph in seven days left Reepham seven points clear at the top of the Anglian Combination Division Two.
Sprowston were superior in the first 10 minutes, but the Robins improved and on 22 minutes James Page crossed from the left, Kevin White smashed in a shot and Leon Huckle jammed out a heel to score.
Just after the half-hour Dan Stop headed well clear from his 18-yard box only to witness a wonder strike from Page as he volleyed the Robins two up.

On 38 minutes a neat goal from Jodie Peecher may have lifted Sprowston, but one minute later some attractive possession play led to Page squaring to Huckle whose shot was saved by Aaron Bunns. But Gary Belton followed in and rifled the ball in to make it 3-1 at half-time.
The second period was less entertaining with Reepham looking comfortable. Kevin Winkworth smashed a chance against a post before Beau Howard broke from the pack and volleyed in a Belton corner.
