Great Yarmouth Town made a winning return to the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division – in dramatic fashion.

The Bloaters won 2-1 at Fakenham Town last night thanks to a late winner from Chris Holmes.

Ashley Jarvis had levelled for the hosts, shortly after Mitch Forbes' opener for Yarmouth in the 57th minute, but Holmes turned in a Declan McAvoy free-kick in stoppage time to snatch the victory at Clipbush Park.

In the First Division, Dereham Town Reserves were thrashed 6-0 at league new boys Wisbech St Mary.

Kirkley & Pakefield won their FA Cup extra preliminary round replay at Walsham le Willows – also scoring late to win 2-1.
