Watton Reserves were a little unlucky to come away pointless from a tight game against Mundford. Two goals down, Watton fought back valiantly.
Despite hitting the woodwork twice and going close several times, they only had Michael Callaghan's near-post header to show for their endeavour in a 2-1 defeat.

The club's newly-formed veterans' side (over 35s) got an impressive 7-1 away win over Attleborough, two divisions higher, in the cup.
