Unbeaten Downham Town look to maintain 100 per cent in Thurlow Nunn Division One North
Downham Town – enjoying their best start to a season for almost two decades – have the chance to go top of the Thurlow Nunn Division One North tomorrow.
With Diss, Mulbarton Wanderers and Ipswich Wanderers all out of action, Downham know that three points against Cornard United would see them go top of the pile.
The Memorial Field outfit, who are currently fourth in the league standings, have started the new campaign in fine style with three wins from as many matches.
Joint manager Dale Stokes said: “The bond between everyone at the club and in the changing room is so good at the minute.
“The spirit is fantastic and the players are working so hard for each other. Nobody outside of the club expected us to start how we have.
“All things considered, and having to play so many away games at the start of the season, we have made a fantastic start.”
Last weekend’s 2-0 victory at Framlingham proved that Downham, who have yet to field a full-strength side in their opening three outings, are a match for anyone on their day.
“We had a 20-minute spell against Framlingham where we got a little bit tired, but throughout the game we created some really good opportunities but just made the wrong decision at the end of them.
“The game was crying out for a bit of pace and Jack Frohawk, who didn’t start after pulling up in the warm-up, came on and gave us that.”
Elsewhere at the weekend, Fakenham Town will be looking to kick-start their season when they travel to Debenham LC.
In the Premier Division, Swaffham Town have a blank Saturday.
