FOOTBALL: Thomas Wagg took his goal tally to an incredible 50 for the season as KLSC clo sed in on the MG Building Maintenance North West Norfolk League title with a 15-2 demolition of Docking Rangers.
He scored six times to add to a hat-trick from substitute Jack Davidson and doubles courtesy of Elliot Prentice and Connor Walker. Callum McDermid and Scott Moore completed things.
Dominic Howell got the visitors’ consolation goals.
It leaves KLSC just one win away from the title. The season’s last game next Thursday sees them take on Denver, who themselves need a win to climb out of the bottom three. KLSC are also in two cup finals – the George Graver and Division One Knockout.
Even if KLSC should suffer a shock defeat, they will be playing in the Anglian Combination next season. A club spokesman said: “We applied and the ground has been accepted, with the top two eligible to go up.
“We have to give huge thanks to everyone in the background. A great bunch of managers have been getting the best of players week in week out – Phil Wagg, Philip Yates, Ian Prentice and Rob Hewitt – and a special mention to our sponsors Dedicated Care.”
Elsewhere, Kieran Mackender and Dion Evans struck for Birchwood to overcome Dylan Hopkins’ first-half opener for Marshland Saints to earn a 2-1 win, while Upwell Town secured a 2-0 win over Gayton United A.
