DICKLEBURGH have lifted the Crown Fire Central & South Norfolk League Division One championship trophy.

They finished their season with a strange game at Gressenhall, controversially abandoned with the champions leading 2-0.

Dickleburgh took the lead when Jamie Scales found Lee Tricker who danced past two challenges before playing a through ball for Kieran Hain to take in his stride and finish well.

On the hour mark Dickleburgh were awarded a penalty when James Musk was pulled down by the keeper.

Lee Tricker stepped up and placed the ball well into the bottom corner to make the score 2-0. With 66 minutes gone an eight- man scuffle broke out and the referee abandoned the game.

Dickleburgh manager Jamie Scales said: “It's a day of celebration for us in a season where we have won the title for the first time in 21 years and doubled it up with winning the Benevolent Cup, all the lads should be proud of it.” Dickleburgh's man of the match was Kieran Hain.
