AFC Sudbury net success at Long Melford in warm-up game
- Credit: Archant
The speed, movement and fitness of the AFC Sudbury team gave them the edge over Long Melford for most of the game, and their 3-1 victory was a just reward.
Despite Sudbury having much more of the ball it was Melford who went ahead after 39 minutes when Sam Bayliss shot home from the Melford left flank.
On the stroke of half-time Sudbury levelled when Craig Parker ran through the Melford defence to fire home.
In the second period Melford spurned two excellent chances, but it was Sudbury who made sure at the other end.
After 67 minutes substitute Stefan Mallardo found the net from close to goal, and the third goal arrived on 75 minutes when substitute Wayne Blackman pushed home.
