Great Yarmouth Town chairman Stephen Brierley declared himself “over the moon” after Saturday's 6-0 home result against promotion-hungry Halstead.

“I thought all the lads did exceptionally well. Everyone gave 100 per cent and played their hearts out for their shirt and the club,” he said.

Six goals without reply certainly obliterated memories of last season's 7-1 drubbing at Rosemary Lane, and strengthened Yarmouth's second place in Ridgeons Division One, writes Gerry Brown.

It was rumoured that Halstead manager Jody Brown, after keeping his team in the dressing room for over half an hour after their worst defeat in four years, had resigned. Certainly, he did not appear in the clubhouse later.

Yarmouth continue their pursuit of leaders Clacton at March tomorrow (3pm). On their way, the coach will drop off the Reserves at King's Lynn where the seconds will play West Lynn SSC in the Norfolk Junior Cup third round (1.45).

On Tuesday, Yarmouth have a home Division One Knockout Cup tie with Fakenham Town (7.45). Just over a month ago, the Bloaters hit the Ghosts for a 4-0 win on their own ground.

The Youth U18 have a home tie in the Ridgeons Youth Cup (7.45), playing Harford Tornadoes whom they beat 3-1 a fortnight ago.

Tomorrow week, Wroxham come to the Wellesley for a Norfolk Senior Cup fourth round match, and the following Tuesday return in the League Cup.
