Young Remy is a chip off the old block

Remy Gordon proved that dad Dale isn't the only goalscorer in the family as he helped Wroxham reserves to within one point of the top spot in the Anglian Combination Premier Division.

The Yachtsmen's second string were 2-1 winners at Beccles Town, Jamie George scoring the opener for the visitors, with Kevin Waterman notching the home side's effort.

Wroxham took the lead on 27 minutes when Jordan Mace played a neat pass to George who picked his spot wide of Beccles goalkeeper Liam Still.

But the hosts equalised five minutes later after good work by Remblance and Martin, who set up Waterman.

Wroxham won it on 80 minutes when Sam Holt worked his way in from the right and passed to Gordon, whose left foot shot found the bottom corner.
