AS the season reaches its conclusion most of the promotion and relegation issues in Notley's Lowestoft and District League have now been decided.

This week Hearts of Oak retained the first division title as they defeated Oxford Arms 4-0, including a brace from Jonny Williams.

Norton Athletic will be runner's up after they scored two late goals to beat Waveney Youth 2-1. Ric Hudson and Steve Hak the scorers as Paul Jones put the visitors in front.

Spexhall single goal win over Sole Bay United Reserves, means that they are fourth and can still finish third but in order to achieve this they need to beat Pot Black by 14 goals which is unlikely.

Corton Reserves will finish bottom and be relegated.

The second division saw Hearts of Oak Reserves crowned champions following their midweek win and the runner-up position will go to the last game as Hearts play Barsham.

Barsham are currently third after their 5-1 win over Ellingham. They are behind Caxton Reserves who have finished the season strongly and with a 5-1 win over Waveney Gunners.

Barsham will take second and promotion if they can net a point from their last game against Hearts.

Crusaders thumped a poor Lacon Arms 6-0 but will still finish in the bottom two and relegation along with Lacon.

In the other game played Oulton Broad & Notley's Reserves scored two early goals to beat Norton Athletic Reserves 2-0.

The issues at the top of the third division are already decided with Ole Frank champions and Hopton White Hart runners-up and this week Hopton were held to a 2-2 draw at Oxford Arms Reserves. Their John Moore Shield finalists were also held 4-4 by CDS Waveney Reserves.

A third draw occurred as LIFC and Westhall 207 shared four goals which means that Westhall will finish bottom in their debut season.

Finally, Earsham collected three points in their 5-1 win at Factory Arms.
