A Keith Hetherington hat-trick helped Norwich United pull off a Ridgeons League Premier Division great escape.
The Planters needed to beat Histon Reserves and hope Woodbridge Town would do them a favour and defeat Harwich & Parkeston to climb out of the bottom two.
Hetherington bagged all the goals in a 3-1 win at Histon Reserves, while Woodbridge did their bit by beating Harwich & Parkeston, who took just one point from their final 10 games, by the same scoreline.
Harwich will be relegated unless either Lowestoft Town are promoted and not replaced or Tiptree United move to the Essex Senior League.

The wiin could be last in the Ridgeons League if Town are successful in their bid to be promoted to the Ryman League and not the Southern League.
In the First Division, Debenham LC's late season surge has earned them a place in the Premier Division as they claimed the final promotion place with a 7-0 romp at March Town United.
They will join fellow Suffolk sides Hadleigh United and champions Newmarket Town in the top flight after pipping Halstead to third place on goal difference.
Halstead Town could only draw 1-1 at Great Yarmouth Town.
