Swaffham Town 4

The fourth-position Pedlars felt they should have netted more and done better not to allow the opposition back into the game.

Swaffham took the lead just five minutes in, Matthew Prudence crossing from the left, and Alan Woodcock heading home from six yards at the back post, while Alex Vincent also headed home from ten yards after a Luke Reed cross.

The hosts levelled twice, but in the 61st minute, Matthew Gilchrist knocked home a Joe Jackson free kick and Jackson put the game to bed ten minutes later, lobbing the keeper from 25 yards. Att: 40.

King’s Lynn Town Reserves crashed 3-0 at Braintree Town.
