The Aston Shaw Great Yarmouth Sunday League got off to a slow start at the weekend as all the games on council pitches were postponed. Following the deluge of rain they were too wet to mark out.

The Aston Shaw Great Yarmouth Sunday League got off to a slow start at the weekend as all the games on council pitches were postponed. Following the deluge of rain they were too wet to mark out.

This left the league with just three games played on village pitches.

In the first division, Rollesby beat Memphis Belton 5-2 whilst Hembsy SSC handed Star and Garter a home win as they were unable to field a side.

There was a clash of two new sides in the second division as Martham and Yarmouth White Sox shared the points in a 2-2 draw.

Another new side, Gorleston Rangers, came back from Ormesby with a 4-1 win against Carpathians to get their season off to a perfect start.

It is hoped to complete a full programme of fixtures this week.

Clubs are reminded that the scores should be phoned through by the home team to Glyn Gray by no later than 6pm on the day of the match.

Failure to do so will result in a fine of £25, as per rule 11b in the handbook.

Glyn can be contacted on 01493 651261 or 07504 991058.

In another change it was agreed at the general meeting that to make things fairer for all clubs, especially those based on the village pitches, that for each and every match played the referee's fee will be split 50/50.
