IT was a day laden with goals and two landslide home victories in the Thurlow Nunn League.

Free-scoring LITTLE OAKLEY nearly hit double figures in their remarkable 9-1 first division south victory against shell-shocked Bentleet.

Luke Mayhew plundered a first-half hat-trick for the rampant Acorns.

In the premier division, FC CLACTON dismantled Gorleston 8-0 in a one-sided showdown at the Austin Arena.

There was a hat-trick in that match, too, for Jordan Lartey.

Elsewhere in the premier division, STANWAY ROVERS ran out 2-0 winners at Swaffham Town but BRANTHAM ATHLETIC lost 2-1 at Godmanchester Rovers, despite taking the lead thanks to Jack Madley's penalty.

The Thurlow Nunn League programme had kicked off on Friday night and one of the fixtures saw HOLLAND FC defeat Frenford 2-1.

Tom Holdstock pounced on a mistake to give them a first-half lead.

Frenford then equalised from a late own goal but the hosts grabbed their dramatic winner in stoppage time, through Mason Lumley.

It was a particularly sweet moment for him, having recently recovered from long-term injury.

Elsewhere, BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT produced the best possible response to Tuesday’s 7-0 hammering against Bowers and Pitsea by securing a 1-0 victory at Lewes.

Jake Thompson scored their winner on the stroke of half-time and, in the process, Regent moved off the bottom of the BetVictor Isthmian League premier division table, leapfrogging Corinthian Casuals.
