Despite struggling off the pitch, things on the pitch couldn’t really be going any better for Downham Town, who beat Dereham Town Reserves 3-1 on Saturday.

Mark Smith, Sam Lowe and Karl Tansley were all on target for Bob Warby’s side, as they looked unmoved by the FA’s threat to relegate the club if they fail to make improvements to their ground.

The cost of the required improvements has been estimated at £5,000 and the club are calling for local people to help ensure the future of the side and if anyone can help in any way they are being asked to contact club secretary George Dickson on 07841934026.

We will have more on the story in Friday’s Lynn News.

Swaffham Town were also in action. Paul Hunt’s side are maintaining their push for promotion to step five of Non-League football, and picked up what could be a vital point away in a scoreless game at promotion rivals Great Yarmouth at the Wellesley.

Next up for the Pedlars is a trip to Dereham Town Reserves tomorrow night, and Swaffham will travel to Aldiss Park firm favourites with the chance to move back up to third with victory.
