Aston Berry Great Yarmouth Sunday League
Despite the torrential downpour seven of the nine scheduled fixtures produced results as the league now starts the battle to arrange the remaining fixtures in the few weeks of the season that remain.
In the first division Camden Tavern must now be firm favourites to win the title as they opened up a six-point lead over nearest challengers El Sol following their 5-0 win at basement side Sunningdale Boys.
El Sol have a game in hand but with Camden finishing the season against the league's struggling sides the title is surely theirs for the taking.
Struggling Norton Athletic, who are trying so hard to finish the season, were whacked 7-1 by an impressive Newtown Golfers, this after taking an early lead.
The game didn't get started at Hembsy as the pitch was deemed unfit.

The match was abandoned after 60 minutes with the scores locked at 1-1.
Memphis Belton stretched their lead to three points following a 2-0 win against second-placed Sun, but they are just four points ahead of Star having played four games more.
Venture Albion won for the fifth time as they secured a narrow 2-1 win against Carpathians whilst an improved Mariners Compass chalked up a 3-1 win at Crown Stores.
