Anglian Combination Premier leaders Harleston beat close rivals Norwich Ceyms 2-0 away, while Sheringham needed extra-time before they beat visiting Blofield United 3-1.

Nathan Stone and Laurence Cheese scored Harleston’s goals.

Only three matches were played in the Premier Division, with the poor weather conditions claiming three others.

Joe Keely scored a hat-trick for Hellesdon, but they were surprisingly held to a 3-3 draw at home by bottom club Reepham Town, whose goals came from Sam Cramp, Matthew Hale and Mrtyn Nantongwe. The point was enough to see Hellesdon move into fourth place, above Bradenham Wanderers, who were without a game,

Waveney were 2-1 winners at Caister, thanks to goals from Callum Jones and Connor Swann. Lee Turner was on target for the hosts.

A Sam Whiting brace and one from Alex Hignham ensured three points for St Andrews in a 3-0 home win over second-from-bottom Stalham Town.

The games between Acle and Mulbarton, Long Stratton and Beccles and Mattishall and Wroxham Reserves were all postponed.

Division One leaders Wymondham were 4-2 home winners over Hindringham. Liam Moriarty (2), Jordan Rocastle and Aaron Nixon scored for the pacesetters, with Kevin Clipstone and Stuart Broughton on target for Hindringham.

Mundford – second but 15 points in arrears – were 3-1 winners over a Bungay Town side who were in action after a run of four successive postponements. The hosts were ahead on 29 minute when Ian Fancett scored.

It was 2-0 on the hour mark when Alby Matthews rammed the ball home from close range.

The Black Dogs pulled one back seven minutes later, as John Riches glanced a header into the bottom corner from Josh Knights’ free-kick, but Mundford put the game beyond Bungay in the 74th minute as a quick break down the right ended with Fancett making it 3-1 with his second of the game.
