A GOOD crowd gathered at Hale Road for this second round match in the Norfolk Junior Cup, and it was the young, lively visitors who made the early running.
Dereham created several half-chances which were thwarted by a well-organised Bradenham defence and some good goalkeeping from Nathan Baker.
Eventually the pace of the game slowed and Bradenham started to gain the upper hand. On the half-hour a great cross from the right by Karl Bush curved away from the keeper and onto the head of the in-rushing Ricky Forder, who gave Bradenham the lead.
It was not long before they made it two, again from a header, this time from Craig Foster.
Dereham no doubt considered themselves a little unfortunate to be two down at the interval, and came out for the second half looking very determined, but in the end it was Bradenham who created the better chances and could well have added to their tally.

Both keepers dealt adequately with everything that was thrown at them, and James Eves and Toby Gilbert both had outstanding games at the heart of the Bradenham defence.
Bradenham Reserves visited Hethersett in a league match and gave what was undoubtedly their best performance of the season.
Richard Melton had a commanding game at the heart of the Bradenham defence, completely shutting out the threat of the high-scoring home centre forward, and Carl Arnold and Pascal Guida scored in a fine 2-0 victory.
Luke Dagg also had an excellent game and was voted man of the match.
All in all, a very successful day for the club.
