Swaffham Town swept to an impressive victory over Woodbridge Town to move up to second place in the Thurlow Nunn First Division.
The Pedlars got off to a great start in the 11th minute when Matthew Castellan rose unchallenged to head home and the visitors doubled their lead early in the second period through Alex Vincent.
The Woodpeckers dug deep in the second half though and Swaffham only put the seal on victory three minutes from time through Joe Jackson's classy finish. Swaffham are without a game this Saturday and their next fixture is against Wroxham at home in the Norfolk Senior Cup next Tuesday, kick-off 7.45pm.
They then have a massive home tie against top-of-the-table Saffron Walden Town the following Saturday.
Back at a foggy Shoemakers Lane, the Reserves came back from being 2-0 down to beat Hemsby 4-3. The goals came from Isaac Linford, Alex Havers, Stephen Aspery and Jamie Buhlemann. Next Saturday they travel to Blofield United Reserves.
