East Men’s League 2N
North Norfolk 2,

March travelled to the seaside to emphatically beat basement club North Norfolk thanks to a hat-trick apiece from James Fountain and Ashley Welland.
March started strongly and Fountain completed a first half hat-trick when he slotted in two rebounds and latched onto the end of a Matthew Bamford cross. North Norfolk pulled a goal back just before half-time.
March continued with the same energy in the second half.
Welland scored via a well struck effort, after good work from Adam Graham at a short corner, and finally after a well-worked team move.
March are well placed in the race for promotion but have some tough fixtures in the upcoming weeks.
