PUBLISHED: 10:46 28 March 2008 | UPDATED: 07:18 01 August 2010

THIS week's Notley's Lowestoft and District League fixtures were partially hit by the blizzard- like weather.

With Walmer Road unplayable this meant league fixtures for Kirkley & Pakefield Re-United were lost along with Crusaders, whose Kessingland pitch was also unplayable.

THIS week's Notley's Lowestoft and District League fixtures were partially hit by the blizzard- like weather.

With Walmer Road unplayable this meant league fixtures for Kirkley & Pakefield Re-United were lost along with Crusaders, whose Kessingland pitch was also unplayable.

Thankfully though, everywhere else was on and this meant the semi-finals of the two cup competition went ahead, albeit in atrocious conditions.

At Normanston Park holders Norton Athletic twice went behind to a young CDS Waveney side.

However, they showed the greater strength in the second half to win through 5-3 with Paul Harriman grabbing a hat-trick.

The win sets up a repeat of last year's final as Hearts of Oak defeated Waveney Youth 3-1 to book their fourth consecutive

final.

The final will be played on Friday, May 2 at Crown Meadow, Lowestoft.

In the John Moore Shield, Bungay Town A had no trouble in cementing their final place with a 6-0 demolition at Westhall 2007 and they will meet Hopton White Hart who edged through 3-2 at Oxford Arms Reserves.

This will be played on Friday, April 25 at Crown Meadow.

The only league fixture in Division One saw Sole Bay United Reserves on the end of another heavy defeat as they went down 9-2 at Wrentham in a game that saw hat-tricks for Stuart Holland and Dale Gowing.

The second division title was thrown wide open as leaders Hearts of Oak Reserves went down to Norton Athletic Reserves 2-1 with Chris Morris scoring both the Norton goals.

Ellingham may have their minds on other things lost their fifth consecutive game as they went down 2-1 at Waveney Gunners

and they will need to improve form quickly with their County Cup final just a fortnight away.

The other game played in the division saw Blundeston Magpies return to winning ways as they beat Oulton Broad & Notley's Reserves 4-1.

There were just two fixtures in the third division where Earsham won a thriller against CDS Waveney Reserves 4-3.

LIFC had no trouble in picking up three points as they beat Marquis of Lorne 6-0.
