Swaffham Town FC entertain Newmarket Town in Thurlow Nunn Premier League




At the weekend Swaffham Town entertain the fourth-place Jockeys of Newmarket Town in the Thurlow Nunn Premier League.

In the First Division North on Wednesday night, King’s Lynn Town Reserves lost 1-0 to a Jordan Attree goal at home to mid-table Great Yarmouth Town at The Walks. Tomorrow the young Linnets have a tough trip to leaders Mulbarton Wanderers.

Meanwhile, Fakenham Town – who are in fifth position – enjoy a top-of-the-table clash with second-place Lakenheath.

As well as the Ghosts, third-spot Downham Town are chasing promotion and they travel to 17th-spot Haverhill Borough.

On the Anglian Combination road and troubled by injury, Swaffham Reserves had a good first half matching Caister Reserves at 2-2, Kieran Bruce and Scott Moore on the scoresheet.

Losing keeper Kevin Cross to injury in a trying second half, the home-side netted a further three goals to seal the points. Next weekend is another coastal excursion, at Heacham.

There was a fantastic result for the Pedlars Under-18’s, beating table topping Aylsham 4-1. Two goals came from Kai Mayes, one a penalty, a third from Samer Rahma, the fourth an own goal, for an impressive performance.

Snettisham 5

Snettisham were put under pressure until a low cross from Callum Swann was diverted into the Lynn A goal by Mark Lloyd.

In the second half, Kenny Rushton took advantage of a great Jordan Penty through ball to slot in a precise shot. Lloyd scored direct from a free kick, followed by a piledriver header from Joe Green. The last goal resulted from a superb team move that was instigated by Mark Sainty and well finished by Kenny Rushton. The vibrant Lynn A defence meant Eastwood and Penty had to work non-stop.

Men of the match, Snettisham: Penty; Lynn: the hard working Sam Lammiman.

Kenny Wingfield ran the game well with his indomitable style.
