Wroxham 6, Lowestoft Town 0

Wroxham, having already won 4-1 at Crown Meadow, completed a stunning Premier Division double over their predecessors as champions to open a four-point lead at the top of the table, writes Roy Webster.

The Blues were reduced to ten men in the 15th minute when Dale Cockrill was shown a second yellow card and then a red for foul and abusive language. Justin Fox set up Ben Thompson for the opener and then added the second himself before Gary Gilmore completed the first half with a splendid individual effort.

Two minutes after the break Lee Gilman looped in a header before being replaced by manager Damian Hilton, who scored two late goals to take Wroxham's unbeaten record to nine league games.
