It was a week to remember for some, and one to
forget for others as all 10 teams played in another thrilling week for Division
It was good day for the boys in yellow and green
as Norwich City RDP comfortably defeated their East Anglian rivals Ipswich
Wanderers 4-1 at home. After a poor start to the season, the Canaries have
managed to pick up pointsas the seasons gone on and now find themselves five
points clear of Ipswich, but also five points off of 7th placed Maldon &
Tiptree. Ipswich meanwhile receive their eleventh loss of the season, a result
which could of seen them go level on points with Norwich, but they remain 9th.
Next, Maldon & Tiptree secured fifth win of
the season as they easily beat Lowestoft Town 8-0 at home. It was a comfortable
game for Maldon & Tiptree as they now sit level on points AFC Sudbury and
Boreham Wood Whites, who are all on 17 points. Another defeat Lowestoft still
leaves them bottom, as they have only picked up one point this season, but is
their still time for a victory as the season draws towards its conclusion?
It was a victory for Bishop’s Stortford as they
overcame AFC Sudbury 2-0 away. In what had been a slow start for Stortford (due
to postponements) they have put themselves back in the mix for a top three
finish with their eighth win of the season, they are 3rd in the Division.
Sudbury however have now picked up their sixth loss of the season, after a fine
start to the season where they had beat Lowestoft Town 16-0, where has it gone
wrong for them?
Brightlingsea Regent picked up their seventh win
of the season as they managed to scrape past Boreham Wood Whites 3-2 away. The
win for Regent leaves them in second, as well as a point above closest rivals
Bishop’s Stortford, but they still trail leaders Barking by seven points.
However, its the Whites fourth loss of the season and leaves them mid table.
The final game saw Brentwood Town hold leaders
Barking to a 1-1 draw. This is only the second time Barking have drawn this
season, with their first coming to Norwich. There is still a gap between 1st
and 2nd, and with Barking having this slight hiccup with a loss and draw, could
a title race be on? For Brentwood, its a good result as it keeps them within
range of Bishop’s Stortford, who are three points off them.
Next week, there are no games in Division ‘C’,
so this could be a prime opportunity for teams to have a relax and a rethink as
we head into the back end of the season.
