Cunningham was delighted with the result and the manner of his side’s victory, saying: “It was a really pleasing afternoon.

“We got the three points but we got them by playing some really good football.

“I felt we were always in control of the game and it’s great when you come away from a game knowing you have played football that is good to watch.

“It’s important to start the year with a win. We’ve got a weekend off so we can go into that knowing we have done our job today.”

Cunningham added: “The break will come at a good time for us.

“We have played a lot of games in quick succession; so it gives everyone a chance to recover.

“The danger is that you come back from a week off feeling sluggish, but with a group as committed as this I am not worrying about that.”

Swaffham Town remained third in the table after their 3-2 victory over Debenham LC at Shoemakers Lane.

A Dean Miller goal and a brace from Alex Vincent were enough to secure all three points for Paul Hunt’s side, who have remained seven points behind second-placed Mulbarton Wanderers with three games in hand.

High-flying Mulbarton thrashed King’s Lynn Town Reserves, who scored through Charlie Rudland, 5-1.
