Swaffham Town, who gained some all-important points in a basement battle last weekend, face sixth-place Kirkley and Pakefield on Saturday.

This game is sure to be a more testing one.

Two new signings were in the Swaffham starting line-up against Ipswich- Nigel Julien and the returning Ricky Muggleton, who had a brief spell with the Pedlars at the end of last season.

Both made their mark on the game. Julien opened his goal account in the 27th minute following a goalmouth scramble.

Shortly before half-time Ipswich were awarded a penalty following a clumsy challenge by Scott Voutt on the edge of the Swaffham area.

The penalty was pushed around the post by keeper David Potter.

The second half saw some refreshing play by the home side, hitting the post twice.

The margin was doubled in the 55th minute by the other new player Muggleton.

From there on in there was no way the Swaffham team were going to let go of the three points.

Swaffham Town Reserves hosted Reepham Town in the quarter-final of the Norfolk Junior Cup.

Reepham Town went down to 10 men in the first half after Grant Wisbey was struck in an unprovoked attack.

Chances came and went for the home side which should have been punished.

The match finished all square after 90 minutes at 1-1 and the deadlock still couldn't be broken following extra time.

The teams will meet again on Saturday at Reepham Town.

Meanwhile, Swaffham Town A host Morley Village Reserves on Saturday in the fourth round of the Ben Smith Memorial Cup.
