Walsham-le-Willows enjoyed a fine 4-0 home win over Wivenhoe Town on Saturday.
After an impressive first half, it was no surprise when, from an excellent corner from Lee Warren, Callum Dongray rose high to head home in the 37th minute and make it 1-0.
On the hour mark Walsham scored again from a corner when Cameron Nichols headed home, this time from Reece Clarke.
A minute later Nichols scored again to make the result safe. Lee Hammond scored a fourth to seal a good win for the hosts.
Also in the Premier, Haverhill Borough’s baptism of fire continued as they were beaten 5-3 at home by Godmanchester. Charlie Holmes scored a brace for the home side and Sam Hawley looked to have saved a point when he made it 3-3 in the 90th minute.

Danny Smith finished well, holding off his marker on 10 minutes, and Max Willett finished off a Charlie Smith cross two minutes later.
The home side had several chances to increase their lead, Willett had two shots saved, Aldis’s header was cleared off the line and Johnson’s shot went well over the bar.
Cornard had a better second half without creating chances, however both Kerridge and Taylor had headers that rebounded off the bar before the home keeper Chilvers made an important double save on 58 minutes from a threatening Cornard side.
On Friday night, Long Melford saw off Stanway Rovers to climb away from the drop zone.
They went ahead after 11 minutes, a wide ball to the Melford right flank found Callum Hemsom in space and his shot from the edge of the box deflected into the net.
An own goal made it 2-0 after 42 minutes, before Hemson struck again to make it 3-0 on the hour. Romarion Dunne got a late consolation.
