Top 6 in Premier Division Win, First Division Leaders Win and Stowmarket Town Clinch Reserve League

Unusually for of late each of the top six teams in the Premier Division won their matches on Saturday. Leaders Histon were indebted to a second half goal from Salim Relizani for their 1-0 victory over Thetford Town, while second placed Woodbridge Town came from behind to beat Gorleston 3-1.

Third placed Godmanchester Rovers came away from their long trip to Great Yarmouth Town with a 3-0 success and there were five different scorers in Stowmarket Town’s 5-0 win over Kirkley & Pakefield. Walsham le Willows went behind to bottom side Framlingham Town but eventually won 3-1 and sixth placed Wroxham beat Whitton United 3-0.

Harleston Town continued their pursuit of a league and cup double with a 5-0 win over First Division North bottom side Wisbech St Mary while Swaffham Town, with games in hand, slipped back into third place after coming from behind to win 4-1 at Needham Market Reserves.

In First Division South White Ensign, Harwich & Parkeston and Coggeshall United all suffered postponements because of waterlogged pitches, enabling Hashtag United and Halstead Town to pull away at the head of the table. Hashtag won 4-2 on a windy afternoon at May & Baker while Halstead scored a stoppage time winner at Lopes Tavares for a 2-1 victory.

Despite not playing Stowmarket Town clinched the Reserve League title for the first time after nearest rivals Halstead Town lost 1-0 to an 85th minute goal at Wivenhoe Town. Congratulations to the Stow second string.
