The Division Two leaders Tacolneston got back to winning ways with a 4-0 success at Hingham Athletic Reserves while Morley Village in second place dropped two valuable points in being held to a 2-2 draw at Saham Toney Reserves, who have now finished their fixtures and will end the season in bottom place.

Bunwell beat Necton Reserves 4-1 at home to cement their hold on fourth place and Wymondham Town A won by the odd goal of three at Nostro and move above their hosts as a result.
