The Pedlars were without a game last weekend due to Team Bury's pitch being waterlogged but they will be looking to close the gap on leaders Long Melford on Saturday when they take on The Walks outfit.

Swaffham fought out a thrilling 2-2 draw against Long Melford earlier this month and sit nine points off the pace, although they do have four games in hand.

Meanwhile, Swaffham Reserves enjoyed an impressive 4-2 win over South Walsham.

It was the visitors who struck first though when Adam Brown coolly slotted home on the half-hour mark. Swaffham drew level before the break though thanks to a fine far post header by Ben Harris.

This Saturday the reserves travel to Thorpe Village.
