No WTFC but plenty of TNL action Boxing Day

with thanks to Green'Un here is a round up of the action for Boxing Day and beyond, which thankfully after the weather disruption of the past couple of weeks sees

plenty of games due to be played on Boxing Day, all with an 11am kick-off.

Premier Division leaders Thetford are not in action until the following evening when they host Lakenheath, which gives teams the opportunity to make up some ground on Matt Morton's side.

Harleston can move to within three points of Thetford with a win over their visitors Mulbarton who currently occupy a mid-table position.

Hadleigh entertain Long Melford and a win for the home side will move them up to third and six points behind Thetford.

Ipswich Wanderers have been on an excellent run of late with five consecutive victories in all competitions. They go to a Brantham outfit who have made some new signings in a bid to halt a run of 11 games without a win.

Mildenhall are another team in good form and are unbeaten in five as they entertain Walsham.

Two sides who have had disappointing campaigns meet at Cricket Field Road as Newmarket take on Haverhill Rovers. Although Rovers remain rooted to the foot of the table they have shown some improvement of late in a series of single goal defeats and will be hopeful of getting something from the short trip.

Kirkley and Pakefield have the opportunity to move six points clear of the relegation zone if they can secure a home win over Norwich United at Walmer Road.

Elsewhere in the Premier Division, there are two local derbies as Ely host Soham and Sheringham entertain Fakenham.

Framlingham moved to within two points of Heacham at the top of Division One (North) last night after defeating local rivals Debenham 1-0 at Badingham Road. George Exworth got the only goal of the game just before the break. There was an excellent crowd of 167 to boost the home side's coffers.

Haverhill Borough were due to take on AFC Sudbury Reserves yesterday but the game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

On Boxing Day Needham Market Reserves entertain Leiston Reserves and Matt Blake is due to make his debut for Diss as they play host to Great Yarmouth.

The other fixtures in the North Division see Holbeach facing Parson Drove, Huntingdon taking on Whittlesey and Swaffham hosting Norwich CBS.
