Sadly storm Ciaran had other ideas this weekend with only 18 games surviving the deluge.
Heres David Meeson’s roundup of those games that did survive.
Only three games survived the weather in the Senior Division but spectators did get full value for braving the conditions as 27 goals were scored.
Trimley Red Devils remain in third place after a comprehensive 9-2 win at Westerfield. Curtis Harvey, Nathan Baker and Ryan Chidlow all netted twice and there were further Trimley goals from Jordan Clarke, Ross Driver and Josh Knight.
Wickham Market also had an away win, defeating Old Newton 8-4 at Church Road while Sporting 87 and Haughley United drew 2-2 at the Victory Ground.
The only game that took place in Division One saw Thurston defeat their nearest rivals at the start of the day, AFC Kesgrave, 7-1. Andrew Wood notched a brace with the other Bluesocks goals coming from Brandon Salisbury, Luke Austin, Kieran Waller, Shaun Thorrold and Jamie Barclay. Thurston keeper Dan Stobbart saved a penalty early on. Thurston are now 10 points clear at the top as Somersham move into second without playing this weekend.
In the big game in Division Two second-placed Wenhaston beat leaders Kirton 4-3 and maintained their unbeaten start to the league campaign. Ryan Coleman hit a hat-trick for Wenhaston whose other goal came from Max Jones.
Romaine Scott netted the winner for Elmswell as they beat Needham Market Phoenix 3-2 at Blackbourne Community Centre. Ed Spampanato scored the other two Elmswell goals while Callum Bale and Lewis Heron were on target for Phoenix.
The other match in Division Two saw a win for Claydon Reserves who had a 3-2 success over Stonham Aspal.
In Division Three Redgrave Rangers moved into second place after a 6-1 win at Haughley United Reserves. Josh Farrell hit a hat-trick for Redgrave with Artur Leczcynski scoring twice and Luke Halil netting the other.
Westerfield v Trimley Red Devils
An early cross from Poole whistled across the face of the Westerfield goal and then Baker jinked through but his shot was saved by Burn. Burn again denied Baker with a great save low down as Trimley dominated the early exchanges. A free kick from Poole was turned round the post by Burn, and it was Burn again who denied Knights with a good save. Alcock blocked a goal bound effort from Driver and then Knights spooned his shot over when well placed. Bawar cleared over his own bar but from the following corner KNIGHTS put the visitors ahead. A deep cross from Stannard was held by Punter before Bawar blocked a shot from Baker. Trimley doubled their advantage when CLARKE skilfully spun and lofted into the top corner from twenty five yards. Baker cut inside but Burns parried his shot away. HOWELL was brought down in the box and smashed home the resultant penalty to put the Swans back in the game. Stannard made ground down the right but his cross was too deep. DRIVER scored from the edge with a deflected shot to restore Trimley’s two goal advantage. Sparrow cleared Driver’s dangerous cross behind and then Baker shot wide. HARVEY waltzed through a static Westerfield defence before slotting in and in first half stoppage time BAKER ran through and rounded Burns before firing in.
Halftime; Westerfield 1, Trimley Red Devils 5
Trimley increased their lead immediately after the break when Murphy’s shot was parried by Burn into the path of CHIDLOW to net from close range. Prentice shot over the Trimley bar and then Coombes saw his shot blocked by Osborne. A teasing cross from Stannard was cleared away and then Coombes shot over as Westerfield enjoyed a good spell. Chidlow’s shot was saved by Burn but BAKER scored from the rebound. Stannard broke down the left and his fierce shot was saved by Punter but DUFF scored from the rebound. Prentice fired over and then Burn saved from Knights. CHIDLOW scored from close range and HARVEY added a ninth as Trimley ran out comfortable winners.
