Meanwhile, second-placed Redgrave Rangers won 5-0 at North Elmham. All this means that Redgrave must win their last match at home to Mulbarton Wanderers on third May by a margin of six clear goals if they are to take Toftwood's title. Saham Toney who were already sure of third place finished their fixtures with a 10-1 home hammering of East Harling Reserves while Gressenhall won by the odd goal of seven at Hingham Athletic. At the other end of the table, Mulbarton Wanderers won 3-1 at Rockland United to record their second win of the week and to ensure division one football for next season.

In division three, Watton United A beat Toftwood United Reserves 2-0 to move back into second place. Hingham Athletic Reserves stay fourth after beating West End by the odd goal of three while Bawdeswell won 6-0 at Wendling.

The division four champions, Thetford Rovers Reserves beat Sporle 3-0 to celebrate the divisional title which they won in midweek.
