We finally found our home form this season with a 4-1 win over Dereham Town at Bridge Road tonight.

Ed Rolph began the scoring, turning home Danny Gould’s cross in the 14th minute. Skipper Max York added the second from the penalty spot 10 minutes later after Gould was brought down in the area by Matt Castellan, who saw red for the challenge.

Dan Brown made it 3-0 10 minutes into the second half before a dramatic couple of minutes that could have turned the game. First, Toby Hilliard reduced the arrears on 62 minutes and just a minute later the visitors were awarded a penalty themselves. Sam Roach kept it out though to maintain our two goal lead and 5 minutes later Brown finished well to put us 4-1 ahead and seal the very welcome points.
