The gap at the top of the Premier Division stays at four points with wins for the top two



Thetford took advantage of Whitton's current plight by improving their goal difference with a second 8-0 win of the season at the Ipswich-based outfit. Emmanuel Machaya hit a hat-trick for Matt Morton's side while Wanderers had a 1-0 success at Walsham with Mark Roper on target with the only goal of the afternoon.

The game between Lakenheath and Hadleigh was abandoned on 82 minutes with the nine-man home side leading 2-1. Dean Grogan gave 'Heath the lead and then Luke Young added another from the spot just before the break. However, in the aftermath the hosts had a player sent off. Ethan Mayhew pulled a goal back for Hadleigh with a twice-taken penalty after the original effort was saved by 'Heath keeper Charlie Beckwith who was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for coming off his line. The game was subsequently ended early after an off-pitch melee.

There was another notable incident at Soham where Kirkley and Pakefield keeper Alex Blowers scored the winning goal in injury-time after his free-kick from the half-way line went straight in to give the Royals a 2-1 win.

It was a good day for Lewis Whitehead whose hat-trick brought up his 100th goal for Newmarket as the Jockeys beat visitors Long Melford 5-1.

Brantham also continued their recent good form coming from behind to beat Norwich United 3-2. Jose Santa De La Paz scored twice for the Imps whose other goal came from skipper James Lee.

Eusebio Da Silva Ca rescued a point for Haverhill Rovers with a late goal at home to Mildenhall for whom Kieran Twinn had opened the scoring.

In the other Premier Division game Harleston won 1-0 at Fakenham.
