- Credit: Eddie Deane
It's been a tough week for Swaffham after they suffered with injuries and player availability due to work commitments.
A gritty performance from an understrength first team on Friday evening away to Gorleston, saw a 3-0 defeat – the score not a true reflection on the game.
Many of the Greens' followers and players commented that the Pedlars deserved something from an entertaining fixture after a good performance.
The fact that the man of the match award went to the Gorleston keeper provided evidence of this.
This Saturday sees the Pedlars entertain FC Broxbourne Borough in the first round proper of the FA Vase, kick-off is at 3pm, please make every effort to get behind the boys for this very special occasion.
