Afternoon League

LAST Monday's programme was disrupted by rain, causing cancellation or curtailment of most matches.

In Division One, Burwell found conditions to their liking at Fordham and notched up their biggest win of the season, while success at Sutton brought Littleport B within a point of leaders City of Ely.

Play was possible at Haddenham in Division Two, where Ely Beet suffered their second defeat, having earlier managed to fit in a rearranged game at Newmarket. There is no change in the order of the first six, Mildenhall losing out to Stretham to miss a chance to narrow the gap as Willingham stay on top.
