Combination call-offs and Notley’s League round-up
Beccles, Bungay and Loddon all had their Anglian Combination games postponed at the weekend because of waterlogged pitches.
Beccles were due to visit Wroxham Reserves and Loddon to travel to Spixworth in the Premier Division, and Bungay should have hosted Stalham in Division One.
They will all hope to get back in action tomorrow.
Beccles will entertain St Andrews, three places above them in the table, while Loddon have a tough game in prospect when they host third-placed Mattishall.
Meanwhile, Bungay are at home to Hindringham (2.30), who are just three places above them so there could be the chance of points.

The fixture list this week was decimated by postponements across the region due to the rain with only one fixture played in the first division, four in the second and one in the Primary Cup.
Starting in the Primary Cup, Mutford and Wrentham failed to reach the final as they slipped to a single- goal defeat at Great Blakenham.
The league’s hopes now rest of the shoulders of DK Consultants who will try again this week against Benhall St Mary.
The only game to survive in the first division was between Blundeston Magpies and Pot Black which ended all square at one apiece.
The second division saw two high-scoring affairs. Firstly, in a clash of the bottom two, Norton Reserves thumped Ellingham 8-0.
Norton have now won four of their last five and despite still sitting in the drop zone now have their destiny back in their own hands as a win in their game in hand could see them climb above both Telecom Rovers and Waveney A.
Meanwhile, for Ellingham it looks inevitable that they will drop into the third division having only picked up four points all season and currently 12 from safety.
Telecom Rovers’ plight was not helped as they slipped to a 1-0 reverse against Waveney Gunners whilst Waveney A were on the wrong end of a 9-4 scoreline at Crusaders.
The final match to survive saw Hopton record a 2-1 win against Spexhall Reserves.
The league would now like to hear from any new clubs wishing to join in the 2011/12 season. Call secretary Glyn Gray on 01493 651261.
