With another Notley's Lowestoft and District League season completed here is a quick rundown of all the winners and losers.

The first division saw Hearts of Oak retain their crown, however the gap was just four points in the end as they were pushed all the way by Pot Black who have made great strides this season.

Hearts also retained the KO Cup by defeating Waveney Res 3-2 in the final to continue to be known as the dominant force within the league. Norton Athletic finished third with FC Hearts having a fine season coming in fourth.

Spexhall and Barsham both recovered after poor starts to finish fifth and seventh respectively with Wrentham having a poor end to the season finishing sixth after being among the early leaders.

At the other end Sole Bay United Res. finish bottom with Oxford Arms above them and Caxton Res maintaining their status.

The second division saw runaway leaders in Corton White Horse Seltic who cantered to the title by a 14 point margin. The battle for second was interesting with Ole Frank, Norton Res. and Pakefield all in the running for long spells but it was Ole Frank who got the honour by two points from Norton Res.

At the other end Oxford Arms Res struggled and finished adrift at the foot with Waveney Gunners filling the other relegation spot as Ellingham got the final days points they needed to survive.

The third division was dominated by the new teams with Suffolk Punch winning their battle with GY Town Hall to claim the title and the John Moore Shield.

Harleston Town Res finished third with Lake Lothing closing in but they had to settle for fourth.

Factory Arms finished bottom but can hold their heads high with their never say die attitude.

The league presentation is to be held at Notley's on Friday May 29.
