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.

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.
