Gorleston took the east coast bragging rights and arrested a five-match losing streak in the process after seeing off Great Yarmouth Town 3-0.

The Greens, who had been in the running for the league title until their recent slump, completed the double over Yarmouth after their 3-1 win on Boxing Day earlier this season.

Connor Ingram put Gorleston in front and it looked like a very long way back for Yarmouth when Kyle Howell was given his marching orders just before the break.

The visitors battled gamely in the second half but Gorleston’s quality shone through and goals from Jacob Short and Luke Goreham ensured all three points for Ricci Butler’s side.

The day belonged to Mildenhall though as they were crowned champions following their 2-0 win over Thetford Town. Chris Bacon and Dan Brown got the goals for Mildenhall, who have led the division all season.

Fakenham were left to rue Reece King’s 90th minute winner as they went down to a 2-1 defeat at Godmanchester.

Swaffham Town are off the bottom of the table thanks to a 2-0 win over Walsham-le-Willows. Alex Vincent set the Pedlars on their way just before the hour mark when his cross-cum-shot found a way into the back of the net.

Joe Jackson wrapped up the points in the 62nd minute when he slotted home after good work by Ben Champion.

The result saw Paul Hunt’s men leapfrog FC Clacton at the foot of the table as the Essex side lost 3-2 against Wivenhoe.

Kirkley & Pakefield couldn’t follow up their 2-0 win against Saffron Walden at the weekend as Stanway Rovers ran out 2-1 winners at Walmer Road.

In the First Division Diss Town boosted their hopes of a top four finish thanks to a 1-0 win over Woodbridge Town.

Ben Norton-Hugman got the only goal of the game in the first half. Woodbridge piled on the pressure in the second half but the Tangerines held firm.

Simon Bird’s cool finish rescued a point for Downham Town against March Town whilst Dereham Town Reserves were well beaten 5-0 at home by Cornard.

King’s Lynn Town Reserves were 4-1 winners at home to AFC Sudbury Reserves.
