Dersingham Rovers 2
Downham Town 8
Five goals from David MacQueen helped Downham to a winning start to 2019.
MacQueen opened the scoring in the first minute, latching onto a cross from Harrison Brant. He then fired home a second before Dersingham pulled one back.
Downham restored their two-goal advantage when MacQueen turned provider for Brant to tap in, after good work by Josh Daugherty.
MacQueen scored two more, both following fine through-balls from Harley Murkin, and Murkin converted a penalty on the stroke of half-time after Jevan Cook was felled in the box.
Downham extended their lead in the second half, with goals from Luke Hurcombe and MacQueen, and Dersingham scored their second just before the full-time whistle.
