Thetford Athletic stay top of division one despite the fact that their match against Yaxham did not take place because Yaxham's transport on the way to the game broke down.

East Harling Reserves move up to second spot after beating Hingham Athletic 5-2 and Saham Toney are up to third after beating Gressenhall 3-0 at home. Bottom team Toftwood Rangers notched their second win of the season with a comprehensive 5-0 victory at Rockland United.

Attleborough Town A increased their lead at the top of division two to seven with a 5-1 home win over Swaffham Town A. Morley Village Reserves move up a couple of places after beating Bunwell 6-2 and Saham Toney Reserves won by the same score at bottom team Necton Reserves.

Thetford Rovers Reserves are the new leaders of division three following their 11-0 home win over Rockland United Reserves and Gressenhall Reserves and Foulsham Reserves took a point each from a 2-2 draw.

Hindolveston have moved up to second place in division four as a result of their 2-1 win at Northwold SSC and Beetley's 4-2 defeat at the hands of Fakenham Town A. In the other match, Methwold Rovers netted three times without reply from Shropham United Reserves.

Four of the outstanding third round matches in the Ben Smith Memorial Cup were played and there was one major shock. One of the first division's leading teams, Mulbarton Wanderers were beaten 3-2 by division four leaders Hethersett Athletic.

In an all first division clash, former winners North Elmham comfortably beat Shipdham 5-0 while Dereham Town A proved too strong for Thurton and Ashby in beating them 5-0. In the local derby between Splitz United and Dereham Posties, the latter had the edge and ran out 3-0 winners in a match well refereed by Tim Amos.

There was success for three of the league's teams in the third round of the Norfolk Primary Cup. Sporle won 5-2 at Sprowston Beehive and, in two all league meetings, Cockers beat Tacolneston 2-1 while Watton United A were 6-4 home winners over Colkirk.
