THE Pedlars failed to turn up for the first 25 minutes on Saturday, gifting their opponents three goals from basic defensive errors and flattering a mediocre side.

The goals came in the third, 19th and 24th minutes respectively, clearly Swaffham were not going to come back from that scoreline, but had to ensure further damage limitation.

When they finally switched on, play was far more even and sterling efforts from Chris Sainty, Matthew Parkinson and Lewis Hemeter saw the opponents wobble but fine keeping by Wooten the Halstead number one kept the Pedlars chasing that elusive goal.

Halstead's fourth came in the 72nd minute, well worthy of a goal of the season nomination, sub Adam Rushen striking into the top right-hand corner, leaving Brooks no chance.

Further disappointment for Swaffham, when in the 82nd minute, Stephen Thompson, returning from injury, seeing red for two yellow card occurrences.

An encouraging display from Swaffham subs Nathan Clark and Alex Buckenham, definitely two to look out for in the future.

Swaffham Reserves narrowly lost 1-0 to league title rivals Sheringham Reserves, but retain the top league position by one point, but having played one more game.

Swaffham A brought home all three points for the club, a 2-1 victory over Bridgham United, goals from Lee Cheesmur and Jason Lyons.

This Saturday the A team play host to Yaxham (kick-off 3pm).
