Swaffham Town moved into fifth spot in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division after a hard-fought 1-0 win at Haverhill Rovers on Saturday.

It was a tough game with only one goal in it but the Pedlars left the New Croft with the vital three points.

The goal came in the dying moments of the first half, Ben Coe getting the slightest of touches from a Nick Castellan free-kick.

With the damage done there were chances at both ends but neither keeper was really tested.

Excellent kicking from Tommy Rix provided attacking opportunities while the Pedlars dominated midfield.
