BOOSTED by their six-goal winning performance at Aldiss Park at the weekend, Dereham Town travel to Ridgeons championship hopefuls Needham Market on Saturday.

Needham, second in the Premier Division, have applied to the FA for promotion to the Step 4 level next season, along with CRC and Leiston, who are currently top and third respectively in the Ridgeons Premier.

Dereham Town 6, Woodbridge 2

Dereham rose two places to eighth after hitting Woodbridge for six, with two in reply.

The Magpies opened the scoring with a move started and finished by full-back Ollie Willis.

After making a run, he squared to Nicky Howell whose low drive was diverted by the keeper - but only to Willis, who netted from close range.

Daniel Buhlemann struck a 30-yard shot home and then it was 3-0 to the Magpies when Stuart Williams headed down Danny Beaumont's corner and Adam Gusterson got the ball in the net.

In the second half Williams headed home a Beaumont corner, and it soon became five. Keeper John Higgs threw the ball out to Smith, he passed it wide to Willis before running into the box to fire home the return pass.

The visitors netted when Joshua Marcus slotted home, but Dereham notched another when Kenny Reeves flicked home Joel Brien's corner.

In an eventful finish to the match, Robbie Smythe coverted a penalty for Woodbridge to make it 6-2.
