AFC Sudbury 3 Heybridge Swifts 2 report - Adam Mills smashes Sudbury winner and gets sent off
Bostik North AFC Sudbury 3 Heybridge Swifts 2 This was an exciting and very good performance by AFC as they defeated previously unbeaten Heybridge Swifts, coming from behind twice to take all three points and climb three places up the Bostik North table, writes Tony Simpson.
The visitors, with five ex-AFC players in their side, took the lead on the half hour mark when the ball was put away from close range by Luque.
That was the score at the interval and it took a penalty 64 minutes into the game for AFC to draw level, Sam Clarke scoring the spot kick.
Luque got his second of the game from a well taken free kick, the ball going in off the post to beat Paul Walker.
But the home side responded well and Louis Blake broke his goalscoring duck by netting from close range to even the game up with 18 minutes left.

On 85 minutes AFC got the winning goal with Adam Mills blasting home from the edge of the box. Mills however blotted his copy book when having been earlier booked for a rash trip he committed another foul and was given a second yellow and thus a red card.
That aside, this was three welcome points from a good performance as AFC take to the road on Tuesday to play Soham Town Rangers.

- Meanwhile, AFC caretaker boss Danny Laws has made the decision to release midfield man Jeremiah Kamanzi with immediate effect.
The former Brentford man joined AFC having been released by Maldon and Tiptree at the end of last season. He made five appearances for the club.
Laws said: “The decision to release Jerry from his registration was taken to give him the best possible chance of fixing himself up with another club.
“With other players available and the fact that during the manager change he has been injured I felt it was best that he moves on. He will be a good asset for another team at this time”.
