Swaffham Town continued their Thurlow Nunn Premier Division campaign with a well earned and deserved point against tough opposition, Haverhill Rovers.

The visitors took the lead after five minutes, Swaffham finding it difficult to start games confidently. George Hutton restored the balance in the 22nd minute, striking from 15 yards, placing to the left-hand side of the goalkeeper.

Hutton put the Pedlars 2-1 up a couple minutes before half-time, placing the hosts back in the driving seat and playing the much better football.

Haverhill levelled the game in the 66th minute, their goal coming from a set-piece, although the scorer arguably should have seen red for retaliation following the award of the kick.

The midweek game against Norwich United has been postponed due to their FA Cup replay against St Ives.
