Newmarket Town 0 Seasiders 3

The Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title may be out of reach for The Seasiders but this result made sure they stayed in the hunt should the leaders slip up more than once in their final 15 games. Kevin O’Donnell’s side adapted remarkably well to the all-weather surface at the Ridgeons Stadium against a home side who had demolished previously unbeaten Gorleston just four days earlier.

They were ahead after just six minutes when Scott Chaplin laid the ball back to Jamie Lewis and Craig Jennings was at the far post to plant a firm header from the resultant cross beyond Nower for the opener.

The Felixstowe striker was on target again in the 41st minute after dispossessing the Jockey’s ‘keeper to score from a tight angle and rounded off an excellent personal evening from the spot after being hauled down 15 minutes from the end.

It was the Seasiders most complete team performance of the season and the result saw them climb above their hosts who had started the evening in second spot

Felixstowe travel to Haverhill Rovers on Saturday, who have picked up just one point from their last six games, conceding 17 times in that run while scoring just three.
