In Division One of the Double G Clothing King’s Lynn Sunday League it was a busy day for CSKA and Clenchwarton, who met in a double-header match.

Both the 60-minute games went in favour of CSKA, but only after breaking down a resolute visiting defence, who held out for 40 minutes in both games.

The first game finished 5-0 with Max Mattless 2, Dave Abbott, Aaron McKenna and Jess Hemmings scoring.

It was more of the same in the second match with a 6-0 verdict coming courtesy of Mattless 2, Abbott, McKenna 2 and Joe Reed.

Nine goals were shared as Maltings hosted Macmillan with the visitors edging things by the odd goal.

Kieran Nurse 2, Harry Collison and Kris Smith got Maltings going but they were left snookered by goals from Chris Eley 2, Wayne Morton, Mark Holland and Adam Key.
