Bungay Town Ladies consolidated their position at the top of Division One of the Norfolk Women’s and Girls’ Football League with an 8-0 win at Stalham Town Ladies.

Gorleston gained their second win of the season with a 2-1 win at North Walsham Ladies courtesy of goals from Samantha Hunn and Molly Sims.

There was a twist in the seven-a-side league title race as leaders Briston Wanderers Ladies crashed to defeat at Red Rose Ladies. Stacey High and Megan Skinner were on target for Briston but it wasn’t enough to stop their side slipping to defeat.
Briston remain top of the division but are only a point above Costessey Sports Ladies, who have won all of their seven games so far this season. It all sets up an exciting top-of-the-table clash this weekend when Briston travel to Costessey in a match that could go a long way to deciding the title.
The other match in the seven-a-side league saw Morley Ladies and Harleston Town Ladies fight out a 0-0 draw.
