A Gavin Lemmon goal in added time saw Wroxham maintain their 100pc record at the expense of previously unbeaten Haverhill in the Premier Division.

The home side took the lead when Marcus Hunt scored from a penalty. Wroxham equalised when Gary Gilmore went past two defenders and shot past keeper Arron Benstead to level. The Yachtsmen's winner came three minutes into added time at the end from a free-kick out on the left by Lemmon, for a 2-1 win.

Wroxham boss Damien Hilton said: “Until Gavin Lemmon played his 'get out of jail' card in stoppage time with that free-kick from the touchline I thought we would to have to settle for a point, although deserving all three for our domination.

“Obviously, being top of the table is not significant at this early stage, but I'd rather see the team there than anywhere else.
