The Optic NEN League has suffered a major loss this week with one of its founder members, Dilham United, calling it a day.

They informed the league that due to a lack of players in a confined area, continuation was impossible.

Secretary Roger Bunton stated they were left with no other alternative than to take the sad decision. League secretary Malcolm Burton said he and his colleagues feared there would be more.

On field the play, it was Nicholsons of Stalham Benevolent Cup day and in a day of surprising results, last year's winners Corpusty went out, losing 1-0 at home to Runton, who will now entertain North Walsham Old Boys in the next round.
