Manager Terry Beane is hoping for a triple boost to Cromer's challenge for the Lovewell Blake Anglian Combination championship.

Manager Terry Beane is hoping for a triple boost to Cromer's challenge for the Lovewell Blake Anglian Combination championship.

The Crabs entertain bottom team Watton next weekend, while the two teams currently above them in the Premier Division table, leaders Blofield and Acle, meet at Bridewell Lane.

And two of the other top-six teams, Brandon and Sheringham are in opposition at Church Road.

“There have been some really consistent performances over the last two or three months and all four are still in contention, so we're hoping results will break for us,” said Beane.

“The game at Bridewell Lane is particularly interesting. Acle have put a very good run together, while Blofield will keep battling right to the end of the campaign, but obviously they can't both get three points.”

Acle were the only top six team in action on Saturday, a 1-0 (Thaine Hacon) win at Attleborough taking them to within two points of Blofield.

Blofield, Cromer, Sheringham and Brandon were without fixtures as they had players in the league's FA National League System Cup squad, while Halvergate's game against bottom team Watton was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

St Andrews beat Gorleston Reserves 2-0 (Sean Waterson and own goal), while goals from Aaron Pottle, Matthew Racher and Colin Wines earned Sprowston Athletic a 3-1 win over Lowestoft Town Reserves.

Beccles Town's game against Norwich Union was postponed.

Division One leaders Dersingham beat Scole 3-2 (Steven Clark 2 and Stuart Able) to stay 13 points ahead of Mattishall, who won 1-0 (Jeremy Briggs) against fifth-placed Hindringham.

The game between Southwold and Sprowston Wanderers, third and fourth respectively, was postponed.

Wells are sixth on goal difference from Aylsham Wanderers after drawing 1-1 (Matthew Griffin) with Holt, who went ahead through Kevin Moore after just 36 second.

Aylsham also drew 1-1, with Dereham Town Reserves, with Sam Bryant and Nathan Ferguson their respective scorers.

Wymondham Town, who lost 2-0 (Alexander Brown and Matthew Sadler) at Loddon, are eighth, on goal difference from Hempnall - they drew 0-0 with Stalham - and Loddon.

Horsford drew 1-1 with Mulbarton, their goal coming from Chris Hayes.

Division Two leaders Mundford beat Thorpe Rovers 2-0 (Neil groves and Keith Sirrel) to go seven points clear of Corton, whose game was postponed.

Division Three pacemakers Kirkley Reserves set a club record with a 12-0 spree against Thorpe Village, five of their goals coming from Simon West, taking his tally for the season to 34.
