Peterborough Sports 6 Swaffham Town 0

A disputed penalty awarded just four minutes into the game gave the UCL table toppers an early advantage, the penalty executed with precision.

Two well taken finishes saw the Pedlars 3-0 down with just 14 minutes gone. Two minutes before half-time, Jahy Chima was taken to hospital with suspected concussion following a collision and was replaced by Toby Millward.

On the stroke of half-time, keeper Dan Gentry was sent off for bringing down a player, while the Pedlars protested two players were offside when the through ball was played. Outfield player, Luke ‘The Cat’ Reed took over the position between the sticks and care-takered the side to half-time.

Despite several threats to Peterborough’s goal the breakthrough never came off. The Turbines added three further goals in the last ten minutes, Reed powerless to deny them.

Swaffham: Gentry, Chima, Defty, Platten, Rahma, Reed, Thompson, Tindall, Titmarsh, Vincent, Weaver-Pope. Att: 123.

Tonight the Pedlars are at home to Kirkley & Pakefield.
