Lowestoft Town maintained their command at the top of the Premier Division with a 3-2 win at Felixstowe. Neighbours Kirkley & Pakefield dropped two points further adrift after being held 0-0 at home by King's Lynn Reserves. Leiston, Lowestoft's most realistic challengers, were also held, 3-3 at home by Mildenhall. Though 16 points adrift they have seven games in hand. Wroxham took advantage of Dereham's Vase duty by moving up to fourth with a 3-2 win at Ely, courtesy of goals from Gavin Lemmon, Gary Gilmore and Andy Key (penalty).
