Wymondham Rangers are top of the Evening News Norwich Sunday League Premier Division after coming from two down to snatch a late point at Quebec. I saw this game which was well contested on a bumpy pitch and the home side went two up through goals by Romano, but a great strike by Webb pulled a goal back, and despite missing a penalty Wymondham equalised in the final minute when Whitman found the net. Poringland Wanderers are second after a 7-1 win at Salhouse. Munro, Talford and Josh Farrow hit a brace each whilst Shaun Cann rolled back the years with the seventh. Mantle replied for Salhouse. Norman Wanderers felt the result didn't reflect their performance as they went down 3-1 at home to Marlborough. Whelham and Abrahams scored against their old club and Amis scored the third, whilst Pilgrim scored for Norman. Lewis Brock scored twice as Silver Fox won 2-0 at The Grove and Dog House and Acle rangers shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw, Hilburn scoring for Acle.

Norwich Busmen hit five without reply at Windmill Wanderers, Swatman 2, Allen 2, and May. North Walsham town admitted that their goal led a charmed life early on at Norwich Ceyms, but they held out and took the lead after the break through Davis, but the home side earned a deserved point through Makuve. Aylsham Black Boys started with ten men but still beat Rose Valley Utd 3-1. Rebbeck, Sheppard and Fawkes on target, whilst Salman replied for Valley. Hainford YCOB had unhappy start to their season, losing 6-1 at Norman Wanderers Res; Lee Wade scored their solitary goal. Unicorns are setting the pace in 1B.

Both sides missed a penalty before Durrant equalised. Ottolangui scored the winner late on for the home side.

As was the case for much of last season Upton are hard on the heels of Dereham after a 6-1 win at Mad Moose, Willis (3), Lea, Lake and Tubby on target. Heartsease Casuals rode their luck in the first twenty minutes of a hard fought game against Stoke FC. Justin Cameron scored twice for Stoke.
