Yelverton are hot stuff but title is not in the bag yet

With the weather yet again creating chaos across Norfolk, the Drayton Pharmacy Norwich & District Business Houses League were pleased that at least one game managed to go ahead this weekend.

With the weather yet again creating chaos across Norfolk, the Drayton Pharmacy Norwich & District Business Houses League were pleased that at least one game managed to go ahead this weekend.

Costessey Sports hosted Lingwood Caverners with the winner looking to go second in Division Two behind Jubilee Rangers.

All credit to Dale Rudd and the Costessey team that began snow clearing at 9:30am to see this game played. The game finished 3-3 to keep Lingwood second and move Costessey into third. Scorers for Costessey were T Burton, R Stalker and an OG, for Lingwood, S Watson and a brace for T Hales.

In general (apart from the weather) the league is having one of its most competitive seasons yet.
