Kegan Charlesworth opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Reece Taylor had been brought down inside the area. Kyle Plumb wrapped up victory in the second half to give the Ghosts victory and take them up to 22nd place in the table.

Kirkley slipped to a 3-0 defeat away at Brantham as a brace from Sam Newson did the damage for the hosts whilst Sean Bartlett got the other goal.

Rob Andersen preserved a point for Great Yarmouth after they had fallen behind against Hadleigh, whose goal came through Brett Crisp.

Defensive errors cost Thetford Town the chance of all three points at home against Histon.

Thetford were two goals to the good within 20 minutes. Andrew Wood was too quick for the defender and cut back inside, past the Histon goalkeeper, Sam Roach, and fired the home side into the lead.

Shortly after Elliot Smith stooped low to head Max Melanson’s cross into the net from six yards. However, within minutes of the restart Histon were level.

The referee adjudged that Danny Gould was nudged in the back by Max Morton and pointed to the penalty spot. Dan Brown shot high into the top left hand corner, beyond Will Viner’s reach.

Brown scored his second of the afternoon when Town failed to clear a corner as he skilfully hooked the ball back into the Town net from a tight angle at the far post.

Swaffham Town were held to a 4-4 draw at Holland - the Pedlars’ goals coming through Luis Duarte, Daniel Tindall and Alex Vincent (2).
