King’s Lynn Football League continues to deliver some of the tightest contests in years

The 2021/22 Division 1 season continues to offer some of the tightest contests in recent years.

Watlington have claimed the top spot for some time now and they don’t seem to be giving it up any time soon.

On Saturday they hosted Upwell Town and secured a 2-1 win with goals from Elliott John and Harry Morton.

Thomas Wagg has found the net twice for Soccer Club, but it’s now been six straight league defeats for Gayton.

The Marshland Saints and Denver also played out a 2-2 draw with scorers including Callum Rodgers, Lewis Sparkes and Liam Cox.

The Second Division truly turned into a two-man race between Reffley and Ingoldisthorpe for the league title. Reffley is currently in the lead and has beaten Terrington convincingly 3-0; Jack Cropley scored a brace to add to Charlie Dungey’s 17th of the season.

Ingoldisthorpe hosted local rivals Dersingham Development and picked up three points with a 6-2 win.

Ivan Gkusko and Billy Eastwood have each found the net twice for their respective teams.

KLSC FC reserves and Clenchwarton played out a hard-fought 3-3 draw which saw the Oranges move up to fifth in the table.

Dean Kerr, Sean Naylor and substitute Lewis Burton found the net.

Two goals from Matthew Pearson helped Castle Rising keep a glimmer of hope of being able to catch the first two.

His team beat West Winch 3-2 with Cameron Sayer and Aaron Walker finding the consolation goals for Winch.

The Woottons are proving to be one of the most spirited and determined teams in the league, but their form continues to struggle.

This weekend they were comfortably beaten by Docking Reserves for whom Jack Hawkins scored five goals.

Docking Development were also in action, but on the wrong end of an 8-1 score line against Ingoldisthorpe Reserves. Kai Mayes and Alfie Royle each scored a brace for Thorpe.

Docking are hoping to get back to winning ways this weekend as they host Weeting Saxon Reserves.
