Dereham 3, Ipswich II 0
AFTER missing players through suspension and ski holidays Dereham returned to full strength and to winning ways to move back into the top half of the table.
Dereham had a disastrous start when they lost Mark Hunter for the first 10 minutes after he broke his nose during the warm up and the umpires wouldn't let him start until the blood had congealed.
Dereham dominated the opening exchanges and should have gone ahead when Mark Timm rounded the keeper and laid the ball back to his brother Mike, who missed the ball completely in front of an open goal.

The return of Mark Hunter coincided with the opening goal. A Tom Vaughan clearance found Graeme Campbell, who left a couple of Ipswich defenders trailing before laying the ball off to with Hunter. After rounding the last defender he squared for Steve Jackson to chip the ball over the advancing keeper into the roof of the net.
With Richard Timm and C J Edwards imperious in the Dereham defence, Ipswich never really threatened to score, with only a couple of short corner shots on target during the whole game.

Dereham scored a second goal when a training ground long corner routine saw Steve Jackson bagging his second of the game.
The third goal came moments later as Mike Timm atoned for his early gaffe with the goal of a lifetime. Picking the ball up on halfway he sprinted past the whole defence but appeared to have run out of space and ideas as he approached the by-line. Then a sharp turn gave him a split second but an impossible-looking acute angle. His reverse stick shot rocketed over the keeper's head at his near post, clipping the underside of the bar and rippling the back of the net.
