Norfolk rivals Dereham Town and Norwich United shared the spoils in their first Ryman League meeting at Aldiss Park.

The Planters, who have started their first season at a higher level in superb style, created a chance in the sixth minute when Liam Jackson turned and set up Tim Henery, but he fired wide when well placed.

Dereham won a series of corners and from the third Michael Sommerfield’s far-post header was hacked off the line. But it was United who made the breakthrough three minutes after the break when Henery hammered home a superb drive.

The Magpies equalised in the 70th minute.

Danny Beaumont fed Adam Smith who threaded a great pass to Rhys Logan on the right, enabling him to move in on goal before beating former Dereham keeper Andy Wilton with a superb drive.

The midweek result arrived off the back of Saturday’s brave FA Cup exit to higher-level St Albans City.

The Magpies took the lead through Sommerfield, but Saints equalised and then netted a winner with five minutes left.

Up next for Dereham are Division One North trips to AFC Hornchurch on Saturday and Witham Town on Tuesday.
