The Premier Division's big game of the day between Norwich Union and Blofield United ended honours even.

Ian Smith and Mark Pitcher found the target for Union with Danny McKail and Chris O'Brien replying for the visitors.

But the 2-2 draw, between the sides in second and third, enabled Wroxham Reserves to stretch their lead at the top of the table.

They won 2-1 at Sheringham thanks to a pair of own goals, while Matt Banham's strike was not enough for the Shannocks.

A Tom Davies goal was enough for Cromer Town, in fourth, to take all three points from their trip to North Walsham Town, while Hempnall in fifth, put five past Acle United, thanks to a Paul Franklin, hat-trick, a Robert Browne strike and an own goal.

James Foreman bagged a consolation for Acle.

The day's biggest winners were Dersingham Rovers, who won 7-1 at relegation-threatened Halvergate United.

Stuart Able scored a hat-trick for the west Norfolk side while Nelson Modeira, Gary English, Paul English and Trevor Daniels also found the net.

In the division's other game, Mattishall boosted their survival chances beating Beccles Town 2-1 with Ryan Hardy and Simon Wooden on target.

A hat-trick from Wells Town's Jody Murfit helped knock Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves off top spot in Division One.

K&P eventually lost 4-0.

That enabled Loddon United to move to the top on goal difference after a 2-1 win at Wymondham Town.

Dereham Town Reserves missed a chance to move level on points with the top two after a goalless draw with Sole Bay, while Watton United remain three points off the lead after losing 1-0 at St Andrews, with David Waters bagging the game's only goal.
