Only three games survived the downpour on Sunday.
The Division Two (West) match between Hellesdon and second-placed Cringleford had to be switched to the West Norwich side's ground which was just about playable. Cringleford won by three clear goals against a Hellesdon side who belied their lowly position. A double from Phil Mortimer and an own goal was enough to maintain the pressure on leaders Horsford.
Harleston Old Boys had a convincing 5-1 win at Harts in Division Four (Central) with the goals shared between Paul Godbold, new signing Jon Martin, Matt Myall, Mike Sheehan and Jeremy Williamson. Alex Rich replied for the hosts.
The third match to survive was a Division Four (West) encounter which resulted in the leaders Wymondham College Res opening up a clear lead at the top following a 3-1 home win over Hethersett Athletic. On target for the College were Gavin Dougal, Junior Lisbon and Mike Vlateseas with Mike Pipe replying for the City side.

Looking forward to this week and after two postponements it should be third time lucky for the Kirkley & Pakefield versus Bungay Town and Poringland Wanderers versus Eastern Electricity OB ties to go ahead in the quarter-finals of the League Cup.
Likewise with the Norfolk County Cup semi-final ties between Beehive and Griffin and Aylsham Black Boys versus Norwich Trafford. Also most of last weekend's fixtures have been carried forward to this coming Sunday - so we should see some football at last with a more favourable forecast predicted for the end of the week.
