Downham and King’s Lynn Town Reserves both lost by the same scoreline on Saturday.

Downham had a Pat Yates goal to thank which separated the sides at half-time at Memorial Field. A corner was swung in and met by the skipper who nodded home on 23 minutes.

Coggeshall were red-carded, but grabbed two second-half strikes. The hosts conceded a needless free kick which led to a ball into the box which was flicked in at the near post for 1-1 on the hour, then came a late winner.

Goalkeeper Alex Oughton had a good game on debut.

Attendance: 78.
