Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division

Fakenham Town 1

Saffron Walden Town 1

Ghosts player/boss Robbie Harris rescued a point with a last-gasp goal on Saturday.

The forward secured a deserved draw for his troops by netting in the second minute of stoppage time.

A stalemate had looked more likely when Josh Youngs hit the bar, flicking on Lee Day’s header midway through the second period.

However Saffron Walden looked to have taken all three points with a late second half goal before Harris’s intervention.

Fakenham: Rix, Akers, Dye, Day, Youngs, Gilchrist, Harvey (c), Franks, Plumb, Harris, Brooks. Subs: Wiseman, D. Williams, J. Williams.

l A waterlogged pitch at Godmanchester put paid to the Pedlars’ first Premier Division fixture of the New Year, however it provided an opportunity for a training session.

Swaffham Town wait until next weekend when Rovers visit Shoemakers Lane for the reverse fixture.

A great performance by the Reserves, a 2-1 victory at home to South Walsham, goals coming from Joe Porter and James Thompson. The Pedlars showed more determination and spirit.

The Veterans are looking to build on their good form following their 4-1 double over Harts. The Pedlars are second in their league through alphabetical listing, having the same points and goal difference as leaders Mundford.
