Thurlow Nunn League, Premier and North Division round up, by the Green'un.

A goal deep into injury time from Kyron Andrews salvaged a point for Hadleigh and moved them up to third in the Premier Division after a 2-2 draw against Long Melford. An early Will Wingfield strike put the visitors ahead only for Owen Betts to equalise. Harry Whiting-Noakes then restored the Villagers' advantage before the late drama.

Fourth-placed Woodbridge were without a game and in-form Ipswich Wanderers took advantage with a 3-0 win at struggling Brantham to move to within a point of third spot. Teon Leggett, Kris Rose and Lewis Kincaid with a penalty were on the mark for a Wanderers outfit who have won their last six games. In contrast Brantham are now winless in twelve.

Mildenhall came out on top in an eventful game against Walsham to move into sixth. Jamie Smith gave Walsham an early lead only for a George Bugg penalty and a goal from Tyler Cartner to make it 2-1 to Mildenhall. Scott Chaplin and Ryan Twinn then netted for Walsham to give them a 3-2 advantage. Karl Saffery was sent off for Walsham after the break and the hosts took advantage of having the extra man as Kieran Twinn, the brother of Ryan, equalised against his former side before another ex Walsham man, Tanner Call, grabbed the winner. There was still time for Walsham to be reduced to nine men as Jack Brame was dismissed just before the final whistle.

Kirkley and Pakefield moved six points clear of the bottom two with a 3-2 win over Norwich United at Walmer Road. Miguel Lopez, Conor Swan and Danny Conroy were the Royals' goalscorers with Ryan Forbes and Sam Watts on the mark for United.

Goals from Jordan Foster and James Seymour helped Newmarket come from behind to see off bottom club Haverhill Rovers 2-1. Rovers remain bottom of the Premier Division and are now ten points from safety.

Harleston are still in second, five points behind leaders Thetford, after being held 1-1 by visiting Mulbarton in a game which saw the unveiling of Harleston's new stand.

Elsewhere in the Division Fakenham won 3-0 at Sheringham while it was the same scoreline at Ely where visitors Soham came away with the three points.

In Division One (North) Needham Market Under 23s lifted themselves off the bottom of the table with a 3-1 success over visitors Leiston Reserves. Archie Exworth and Ollie Fraser were amongst the scorers for the Marketmen with Joe McNeil on target for Leiston's second string.

New signing Matt Blake made his first appearance for Diss in their home game against Great Yarmouth. However, his presence could not inspire the Tangerines who went down to a single Connor Smith strike.

In the other North Division games played Holbeach moved into a play-off spot with a thumping 7-1 win against Parson Drove who are now bottom of the table. Huntingdon defeated visitors Whittlesey 1-0 while Swaffham drew 2-2 with Norwich CBS.
