The Pedlars finished their impressive season with a deserved win in front of an enthusiastic home crowd.

Against play, the visitors took the lead in the 14th minute, only for Joe Jackson to restore the balance seven minutes later from 18 yards, played in by Alex Vincent.

It took until the second half for Swaffham to find that extra gear, their second a rasping shot from Dylan Edge from just outside of the box.

Luke Reed made it three with 59 minutes gone, heading in a Vincent corner.

Jackson bagged his brace on 65 minutes and captain Dean Miller finished the season off with number five with two minutes to play.

Following the match, Thurlow Nunn League president, John Day, accompanied by match officials officer John Tithcott, made the runners-up shield presentations and the First Division leading scorer trophy to Alex Vincent.
