FOOTBALL: A solid first-half defensive performance helped Dersingham Rovers to a point in a goalless Anglia Combination Premier Division draw at Caister.

Caister had the better of the first half, hitting the woodwork three times. A fine diving save by keeper Matty Hails and Stephen Parkes clearing off the line saved Rovers. With the elements in their favour, Robbie Palmer hit a post with a free-kick and the crossbar with a header with Trevor Daniels and Scott English denied as Dersingham pushed for a winner. Man of the match was Steven Parkes.

Feltwell United forced themselves firmly back into the Division Five promotion race with a superb 3-0 victory over fellow challengers Hingham Athletic.

John Waites struck twice with substitute Joe Allen also finding the net. Feltwell had been rocked by a 6-0 defeat at Hingham in September but bounced back and are now six points adrift of their second-placed rivals with two games in hand.

A first-half goal from Mark Sainty was enough to keep Redgate Rangers four points clear at the top, thanks to a win at Mundford Reserves.

A last-gasp effort from the hosts was kept out by a superb save from Karl Barber.

Dersingham Reserves slumped to a 3-0 defeat at home to Hellesdon Reserves in Division Six, while Tom Cunliffe and Aaron Nicol earned Gayton United a point in a 2-2 draw at Reepham.

* King’s Lynn Town Reserves stayed two points adrift of leaders Netherton United in the Peterborough League but closed the goal difference gap with a 7-0 demolition of Sawtry.

* Outwell Swifts Reserves cruised into the quarter-finals of the Cambs
County League’s
Reg Haigh/Arthur Peck Cup with a 6-1 victory over Sawston Rovers Reserves. Andy Whyte, Keith Harris, Aiden Rouse, Stuey Ablett Ray Points and Scott Wylie shared the goals.
