Two of the form teams in Thurlow Premier clash at Summer Road this weekend.

Walsham-le-Willows (5th), with just one league defeat in five, and Woodbridge Town (7th), with just one league defeat 11 meet in a mouth-watering clash as both look to put pressure on the top placed-teams.

Jamie Scales’ Woodbridge side are not just winning games, but winning them in style, with 15 goals in their last three Premier Division victories.

Walsham, however, are showing real mettle this season under Trevor Newman’s guidance. A win for the Woodpeckers would leapfrog them above their opponents.

Kirkley & Pakefield are another side who are enjoying a good season.

Currently sixth in the table, they will be confident of three more points at home to an Ely side who have only picked up one win in the league on their travels so far this season.

Four goals from George Clarke saw Brantham pick up a big 5-1 win at Norwich United last Saturday.
