Lynn Reserves came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at The Walks against Cornard.

Lynn made four changes to the side which lost at Great Yarmouth. Youth team players Setchell and Kieren Shipp both started at home for the first time.

Eoin McQuaid (2, including a penalty) and Jalo were the scorers for Lynn.

Gorleston 3 Swaffham Tn 0

A tough week for the Pedlars, suffering with injuries and player unavailability due to work commitments on Friday night.

A gritty performance came from an understrength team, and the score was not a true reflection on the game.

Many of the Greens’ followers commented that the Pedlars deserved something from an entertaining fixture. The fact the man of the match award went to the Gorleston goalkeeper was evidence of this.

The Under 18’s on Thursday host Sheringham in the Thurlow Nunn North Division, 7.45pm.
