Swaffham Town in seventh heaven
Swaffham Town boss Paul Hunt believes that Saturday’s seven-goal showing at Shoemakers Lane will give everyone at the club a huge lift for the remainder of the season.
The Pedlars, who drew 3-3 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, made no mistake on their own patch.
Striker Joe Jackson bagged a hat-trick, while Alex Vincent and Matty Prudence helped themselves to braces.
A delighted Hunt said: “It was great to get back to winning ways on Saturday.
“I think the boys really deserved it, because the couple of games before that we probably deserved more than what we got.
“A win is always nice, but a convincing win like that is great; it gives everyone a lift after a few disappointing results.
“We just need to keep winning games and put a good run together, then see where it leaves us at the end of the season.”
The afternoon started with a minute’s silence in memory of long-standing Swaffham supporter Paul Thorpe, who recently passed away.
