Pedlars out of cup

Thetford Town 2 Swaffham Town 1

In the Norfolk Senior Cup third round, a first-minute penalty decision sealed the fate of the Pedlars.

The penalty converted, both teams settled, but neither looked as if they were going to get into further scoring opportunities. The visitors looked strongest from corner set pieces, Swaffham struggling to clear. The Pedlars looked composed on the break, but failed to complete the moves to test the keeper.

Thetford made it two in the 58th minute, Craig Burton scoring a consulation for Swaffham in the 80th minute. The few opportunities by either side were adequately dealt with by each keeper. Dean Mayes made the best save of the afternoon, blocking a volley, forcing the shot over for a corner.

On Thursday, Swaffham Under 18 play Watton at Shoemakers Lane 7.45 kick off, in the first group qualifying of the Eastern Junior Cup.
