With the winter’s freezing spell at an end, the area’s football clubs are ready to kick back into action on Saturday and get their seasons back on track.
Beccles Town are best placed, sitting 10th in the Anglian Combination Premier Division and currently on a run that has seen them ease fears of being dragged into a relegation scrap.
The Wherrymen have suffered just one defeat in their last five league outings – including leaving Spixworth with a 1-0 win last time out at the end of January.
Another trip, this time to struggling Wymondham Town, should not hold too many fears for Beccles on Saturday either.
The hosts are deep in relegation the mire, with only Wells Town keeping them from the foot of the Premier Division table.
Loddon United sit four points behind the Wherrymen but with a significantly better goal difference than the four sides below them in the Premier Division.
They travel to Hempnall – one point and two places behind United – in a game that could go a long way to defining both sides’ seasons. United have won just once in eight league matches.
Bungay Town were again idle last weekend when their scheduled Division Two game at Mundford was postponed. Saturday afternoon they entertain bottom side Hempnall Reserves (2.30pm) having seen their faint hopes of a promotion push – brought on by a run of nine points from nine in December – fall away.
Free-falling Beccles Caxton are only a few points away from easing any relegation nerves – but they will need a change in form to pick those up. Caxton’s last league win came on October 8, at home to Hempnall. Despite their winter-enforced break, Caxton will have to wait another seven days before returning to action – when they host East Harling.
