Swaffham Town are preparing for this weekend’s Thurlow Nunn League Division One crunch match with promotion rivals and league leaders Saffron Walden Town, at Shoemakers Lane, writes Ed Colman.

The Pedlars go into the game just three points behind the Blood, after a 4-3 victory over Team Bury at Ram Meadow on Tuesday night.

With Alex Vincent finding the back of Noel Aitkens’ net twice as well as strikes from Joseph Jackson and Matthew Castellan, this was enough to give Paul Hunt’s side all three points despite a determined effort from their hosts.

Victory in tomorrow’s match would make the Pedlars firm favourites for the First Division title, as not only would they sit top of the table but they would still have a game in hand over second place Saffron Walden and two games in hand over third placed Long Melford.

Elsewhere Downham Town take on March Town United, in what promises to be a close competitive match with just two league positions separating the two sides.
