Top two drop points to sides scrapping for safety

Division One leaders Castle Acre Swifts dropped two points in being held to a 3-3 draw by Gressenhall who belied their lowly position with a gritty performance and another point towards safety.

Division Three leaders Litcham were again without a game.

Mulbarton Wanderers A are back on top of Division Four after beating third placed Yaxham Reserves 4-0.
