ALMOST all of the domestic issues have now been decided.
In the third division Suffolk Punch completed the league and cup double by beating Great Yarmouth Town Hall 1-0 in the John Moore Shield final on Friday evening.
They followed this up on Saturday with an exciting 5-4 win at Factory Arms to extend their lead to four points with one game remaining.
Town Hall will finish second with Factory Arms finishing bottom with Westhall above them.
Harleston Town Reserves' narrow 2-1 win against Marquis of Lorne all but confirms their third place finish while Lake Lothing's single-goal win against Waveney A confirms fourth place for them.
In the second division the top three are now confirmed. White Horse Seltic beat bottom side Oxford Arms Res. 5-2. Ole Frank, needing one more win to confirm the runners-up berth, beat Waveney Gunners 3-0 while Norton Athletic - following two defeats - bounced back with a midweek 4-1 success at Pakefield Re-United and a single goal win against Crusaders and are ready to pounce should Ole Frank slip.
Hopton White Hart look likely to finish fifth following their 4-2 reverse at Oulton Broad and Notleys, a win that sees them safe.
LIFC and Tudor shared 10 goals and are comfortable in mid-division whilst Ellingham's much needed 2-0 victory at Bungay puts their destiny in their own hands. They need to gain a point from their final match with Tudor FC to stay up and send Waveney Gunners down.
All the issues in the first division are now resolved.

Pot Black's 2-0 win at Wrentham ensures the runners-up spot.
Spexhall's 2-0 win against Oxford Arms moves them up to sixth, while Oxford Arms are safe following their 4-0 midweek win against cup finalists Waveney Reserves. Waveney have lost form since reaching the final and went down 5-1 at Blundeston Magpies.
Barsham, on the back of three games in three days, will finish mid table as they beat Caxton Reserves 3-2 on Thursday and followed with a 4-2 win against Sole Bay Res, a result that relegates Sole Bay.
