Wroxham stem the flow of goals
Wroxham 1 Waltham Abbey 0
Wroxham boss Stewart Larter was delighted as the Yachtsmen battened down the hatches.
A goal in the final minute of the first half by Jack Garrod settled the issue for Wroxham, who kept a clean sheet after shipping nine goals in the previous two games.
'We looked solid and I was pleased with our play, off the ball,' said Larter. 'We pushed up better than last week. That said, we should have done better in the first half with the chances we had.

'Nathan (Stone) led the line well and Stephen Taylor and Matt Halliday were solid. It was a good all-round team performance.'
The result moved Wroxham up to 13th in the table, three places and two points behind local rivals Dereham, and with a game in hand. But those positions could change tomorrow, when the sides meet at Trafford Park.

Stone smashed a shot against the bar early on after a mesmerising run from deep with Jamie Forshaw missing the rebound from three yards.
In the 40th minute Wroxham had thought they had got the opening goal when Stone netted but was adjudged offside, but the goal Wroxham deserved finally arrived in the four minutes of additional time signalled by referee Callum Walchester. Stone was involved again, playing in Garrod on the left. Garrod's step-over as he cut inside fooled the defender on the edge of the area, allowing him space to fire into the top left-hand corner of the net leaving Page just grasping thin air.
