Home joy at last for Thetford Town
14:31 19 January 2014
Thetford Town finally ended their long run without a home win when they beat Stanway Rovers 2-1.
Town’s last home league win was back in March – and the fact that Diss, Ely City and Woodbridge also lost will have raised the mood in the Thetford camp even more. Diss were beaten 3-0 at leaders Hadleigh United, while Kirkley & Pakefield drew 1-1 at CRC, Ross King scoring for the Royals. Gorleston were 1-0 home winners over Haverhill Rovers, thanks to a 36th-minute goal by Nathan Stone.
In the First Division, a stoppage time equaliser from Mitch Forbes secured a well-earned point as Great Yarmouth Town drew 1-1 at Long Melford. Swaffham came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Ipswich Wanderers and move into third, thanks to goals from Joe Jackson and a brace from Alex Vincent.
Dereham Town Reserves won 3-2 at Cornard while March Town United were thumped 7-1 at Team Bury.
