Football round-up: Foulsham and South Creake draw, North Elmham hit six

Sprowston Athletic 1, Foulsham 1

FOULSHAM travelled to Sprowston Athletic on Saturday for an Anglian Combination Division Two match against a team that had scored 16 goals in the last three league games and, like Foulsham, were unbeaten this season.

The result, in a feisty match, was a 1-1 draw. Foulsham's scorer was Richie Young from a superb Craig Hagon free-kick, with Sprowston winning the yellow card battle by seven cards to two and finishing the match with nine players.

Foulsham now take a break from their league programme as they meet Watton United Reserves at home on Saturday (2pm) in a Norfolk Junior Cup second round tie, and the following week they travel to Thetford Rovers in the Cyrill Ballyn Trophy.

Foulsham Res 3, East Harling Res 1

FOULSHAM Reserves met East Harling Reserves at home on Saturday, and recorded their second successive win when a Luke Smith hat-trick saw off the visitors by 3-1.

North Elmham & Lyng 6, Northwold SSC 0

NORTH Elmham & Lyng moved up to third in Division One of the Crown Fire League after an emphatic 6-0 win over Northwold SSC.

The hosts opened the scoring when referee John Hodson judged the tackle on Stewart Biggie warranted a penalty. Up stepped Liam Chapman to fire it home. Biggie and George Abbott then added to the score taking Elmham 3-0 up at half-time.

In the second half Riccy Mallett soon made it four before Aaeron Moss calmly ran into the penalty area and fired his shot past the keeper into the back of the net.

With 10 minutes remaining Biggie scored his second with a well placed shot into the corner.

South Creake 5, Ingoldsithorpe 5

SOUTH CREAKE hosted Ingoldisthorpe, who boasted a 100pc record prior to the game.

The visitors opened the scoring, but immediately debutant Tom Raisbury was upended and Nathan Boon dispatched the resulting penalty.

Martin Stearman then dropped a routine cross and 'Thorpe were ahead. The visitors then scored three quick goals after some terrible goalkeeping and defending to lead 5-1.

An inspired half-time talk from Dan Studd roused the hosts and within five minutes they had a goal back as Tom Schoenmakers finished from a tight angle.

After some sustained pressure Miak Hallgren's cross was nodded down by Jamie Broady for Tom Raisbury to fire home. Conor Welch was rewarded for his endless work rate when he prodded home the fourth.

The equaliser was from a long throw flicked on by Welch for the returning Carl Adcock to stab home within minutes of coming on.

Ingoldisthorpe had a late penalty appeal turned down and also had a man sent off.
