Kirkley & Pakefield missed a chance to move up to third place in the Premier Division when they drew 1-1 at Leiston but Dereham Town had a 2-1 home win over Haverhill. An early goal from skipper Adam Gusterson, who glanced in Craig Terrington's free-kick, put the Magpies in front after Adam Smith and Ollie Willis signed new contracts before the game. Scott Roberts slid home another Terrington cross for the second before Haverhill pulled a goal back when Neil Cogger's flag kick deceived keeper John Higgs and made its way directly into the net.
