Thurlow Nunn ECL Premier Division
Saturday 27th October 2018
Kick Off @ 3:0pm
Another big game awaits us in the league tomorrow afternoon when we travel to third placed Norwich United as Lance and the team look to maintain our position at the top of the table.
Our last league outing was of course that memorable 3-1 win over Godmanchester Rovers at the Glassworld a week ago but since then we went out of the League Cup at the hands of Ely City on Tuesday night, a performance and result that the Manager wasn’t happy with obviously but tomorrow we have the chance to get back to winning ways.
Lance was able to rest one or two players on Tuesday night though and also welcomed Pat Bexfield back into the side, the versatile midfielder having recovered from a groin injury to make his return to the team from the bench. Striker Ed Rolph remains a doubt and will face a late fitness test on a hamstring injury but Joe Sutton will not be with us this weekend having just finalised a loan move to Mildenhall Town, a move that will see him stay with The Hall initially for a month.
Our hosts have seen their form dip a bit recently with defeats against Whitton United and, most recently at home against Clacton last weekend in the league but rediscovered their winning touch when overcoming Lakenheath in the County Cup on Tuesday night. The Planters remain well placed in the table though and our trip to Plantation Park tomorrow will be a tough one. Our last visit there holds good memories for us with Simon Unwin and Cameron Watson on the scoresheet in a 2-1 FA Cup Prelminary Round win in 2016.
