2010/11 season comes to a close
The league’s season came to an end on Saturday with the final matches. League champions Bridgham United travelled to Gressenhall and went down to a 3-0 defeat, a result which ensured Gressenhall take fourth place in Division One.
Morley Village beat Castle Acre Swifts in Division Two to pip Shropham United to third place by one point. In the other match, Nostro and Hethersett Athletic shared the spoils from a 4-4 draw.
In Division Three, runners-up North Elmham were beaten 4-3 at Methwold Rovers but Methwold were denied a third-place finish by Breckland Wanderers taking a point from their 1-1 home draw with Marham Wanderers. In the other match, Bawdeswell beat Stoke Ferry 6-4.
In the final match in Division Four, champions Diss Town A beat Tugas United by the odd goal of three to give them yet another league record.
