Gary Ingram helped himself to a hat-trick, with Chris Holmes, James Foreman and James Lacey adding the trimmings as Acle moved into fourth spot, three points behind leaders Hempnall with a game in hand.

A Tom Halliwell goal was enough to earn Hempnall the points against Hindringham, although a weakened Wroxham Reserves side slipped off the top when they suffered a surprise 3-2 defeat at home to Sprowston Athletic.

The Yachtsmen were missing a number of senior players called up for first team duty in the FA Cup at Kirkley and trailed 2-1 at the break.
