Wroxham roared back from two goals down to draw at Walsham le Willows in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division.

Tom Parke and Ross Potter's side salvaged a point in Suffolk thanks to goals in the second half from Tom Matthews and Robbie Sweeney.

The Yachtsmen fell two goals behind in the first half and were grateful to a good save from goalkeeper Will Vine keeping them in the game before they struck back.

A header from defender Matthews midway through the second half brought the visitors back into the game and went on the offensive, with Sweeney, Ross Gilfedder and Pete Wiltshire all going close.

However, Sweeney fired home a late equaliser to grab a point for Wroxham and move them up to third place, with Walsham remaining seventh.

The Yachtsmen return to action on Saturday with FA Vase action at Trafford Park, where they host First Division side Norwich CBS in second round qualifying.
