With no game on Saturday the Pedlars returned to action last night when reigning champions and league leaders Norwich United arrived at Shoemakers Lane.
Town remain five points clear of the relegation zone but with two games in hand on 18th-placed Thetford ahead of the trip to Stanway.
The under-18s were the only Swaffham side to complete a fixture last week, the weather beating the first team midweek and the reserves in the Anglian Combination on Saturday, with both fixtures suffering from waterlogged pitches. The Young Pedlars progressed safely through the preliminary round of the Thurlow Nunn Youth Cup with a 2-1 victory over Downham Town.
Callum Robinson and Jack Prentice scored for Swaffham and the Downham consolation came from a bizarre own goal.
The U18s will travel to The Walks to face King's Lynn Town on Wednesday, March 16 for the next round.

On Saturday the reserves are at home to fifth-placed Hemsby in Division Three, looking to extend their eight-match unbeaten run.
