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.
