Swaffham Town Under-18’s have all to play for on Thursday as their Thurlow Nunn Youth League season finishes in the most exciting fashion.

Dereham Town visit Shoemakers Lane for a winner-takes-all game. Kick off is 7.45pm,.

Dereham were held to a 1-1 draw last week away to Horsford, while Swaffham won at North Walsham. The young Pedlars were 3-1 down at half-time but came back and won 7-3.

It must have been an inspiring pep talk delivered by managers Paul Hunt and Sam Loomes. Scorers for Swaffham were Sam Carter, Cameron Lee, Nick Castellan, Matthew Blackford, Connor Germaney and a brace from Jake Slender.
