The Pedlars’ recent run of Thurlow Nunn Premier Division bad form continued on Tuesday evening at Shoemakers Lane.

Mildenhall are the visitors tomorrow.

Similar fortune for the Reserves, a 5-0 Almary Green Anglian Combination Division Three defeat to Long Stratton Reserves. Next weekend they are away to Freethorpe.

The Under 18’s were casualties of the weather, but last night (Thursday) hosted Horsford.

On Sunday the Veterans are away to North Walsham Town Old Boys in the Norfolk County Veterans League, First Division.

Denver 4 Woottons Res 1

Two goals in the opening ten minutes put Denver on the road to a comfortable victory against their fifth-placed opponents.

Centre-back Darren Thorpe bundled home his fourth goal of the season following a Danny Brooks corner before Jake Dewing set up Matthew Wolfe for his ninth goal in seven appearances.

Brooks fired home a freekick from 20 yards to make it 3-0 two minutes before half-time.

Denver missed several opportunities to increase their lead after the break and were disappointed to concede from a Woottons corner in the 98th minute.

But the home side hit back straight from the kickoff when second half substitute Callum Cottey claimed his sixth goal of the season.

A strong line up for The Woottons, in very cold and windy conditions on Sunday, saw the home team score first half goals through Harry Carter and Jak Uppington.

No let up in the second half from The Woottons, who kept the Clenchwarton goalkeeper busy. Although the visiting team didn’t give up, hat-tricks followed for Carter and Uppington and goals from Thomas Wagg (2) and Thomas Harwood added to the final goal tally for the home side.
