Gorleston continued their promotion chase with a win against March

Another frustrating day for the fixture secretaries with the weather hitting hard again, but of the games played there were significant results.

Just two matches survived the sodden conditions in the Ridgeons Premier Division, although neither involved Norfolk sides, while in Division One there was better luck and good fortune for the majority.

Promotion chasers Gorleston and Diss remain second and third in the table after wins at March Town United and Downham Town, while Thetford Town are now up to seventh after their 6-0 demolition of Team Bury.

King's Lynn Town's game at The Walks was the only one to survive in the UCL Premier and one goal was enough to take all the points against Wellingborough Town.

Centre half Ross Watson, who put pen to paper on a two-year contract only last week, got the all important goal.

Significantly, the win takes The Linnets to within a point of leaders St Neots Town and should results go right during the week then Lynn could go top.

If that was to be the case, it would be a terrific boost ahead of the FA Vase quarter final against Rye this forthcoming Saturday.

A brace from Michael Frew saw Lowestoft Town come away from Horsham with all three points in the Ryman Premier.

With most teams around them in the play-off zone not playing, it was good use of one of The Blues' games in-hand and they now sit third in the table.

Another side to gain at the weekend was Cromer Town in the Anglian Combination Premier.

Again, many fixtures were postponed but The Crabs tightened their grip on the The Sterry Cup with a 2-0 win at coastal rivals Sheringham.

Craig Terrington and David Hinton were both on target for Cromer.
