Runners-up spot in Central & South Norfolk Division Two will go to last match

17:01 14 May 2012

Runners-up spot in Division Two will go to the last match of the season following Saturday’s results. Yaxham won 2-0 at Nostro but North Elmham beat West End 8-1.

This leaves Yaxham needing to avoid defeat by more than 13 goals in their final match at Saham Toney Reserves on Tuesday evening to make sure of the runners-up spot. Thurton & Ashby finished their season with a 4-3 home win over Hethersett Athletic while Saham Toney Reserves won 5-2 at Breckland Wanderers to condemn Cockers to bottom spot in the Division.

There was only one match in Division Three but it was the critical one between Tugas United and Scarning United to determine the destination of the divisional title. A keenly contested match saw Tugas leading 2-1 from the 15th minute but then making the game safe with two goals deep into added time to record a 4-1 victory and make certain of the title with one game to spare. The game was very well refereed by Michael Griffiths.

Shropham United Reserves made certain of third place in Division Four by beating Weasenham Wanderers 5-1 while the bottom two met and Shipdham Reserves came out on top beating Methwold United 2-1.
