March pulled off the result of the day in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Premier Division, beating leaders Gorleston 3-1 to inflict only the second defeat of the season on the Greens.

Sam Garner gave the Hares the lead and Jack Friend made it 2-0 with 15 minutes remaining, before the visitors pulled one back. Friend's 18th of the season from the penalty spot in the final minute secured a great win in front of a season's best crowd of 254.

Parson Drove are up to 11th in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League First Division North after an excellent 3-1 win at sixth placed Huntingdon Town, Ryan Lennon's double taking him to eight for the season and Ryan Alexander also notching.
