Lee Gilman celebrated his comeback with two goals as Wroxham sounded another warning to their Ridgeons Football League Premier Division championship rivals. The Yachtsmen now boast the top flight's only unbeaten record after beating morning table leaders Needham Market 2-0 at Trafford Park. Gilman, returning from injury, scored with two volleys, in the 34th and 36th minutes.
Needham drop to third place while Wroxham move up to second, a point behind Mildenhall, who beat Ipswich Wanderers 2-1.
“It's great to have Lee back because he's always a threat and scored two very good goals,” said Wroxham skipper Justin Fox.
“Needham came with the reputation of being a very good side, but we dealt with them really well.
“There wasn't a bad display in thw whole squad, we were on top for the whole of the game and we should have won by a lot more goals.
