Mildenhall Town recorded an important 2-1 win at Walsham le Willows on Saturday to keep their Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title ambitions intact.

Max Melanson gave Hall the lead, but Ryan Gibbs got Walsham back on level terms.

However, Mildenhall stole the points courtesy of Lee Clift’s crafty backheel, although the win was dampened with the news of a serious injury to Hall player Rob Ruddy.

Elsewhere in the division, Michael Brothers and Matt Carmichael got their first win in charge of Brantham Athletic.

The Imps defeated Godmanchester Rovers 2-0 at home, with Sean Bartlett and Sean Gunn scoring the goals.
