After a long journey to darkest Cromer in North Norfolk hopes were high for a win.

It soon became apparent that both sides were extremely evenly matched, with the game ebbing and flowing between the opposite 25 yard lines.

By half time the stalemate had yet to be broken with both sides defending vigourously.

The closest IES came to scoring was when a ball was hit across the North Walsham goal mouth, was not intercepted by four defenders and was hit just wide of the goal by the John Wright.

The second half was much in the same mould, with both sides pushing forward only for their drives to be broken down.

The excitement lasted right to the wire when on the full time whistle IES were awarded a penalty corner.

With all IES players forward, the North Walsham defence was rattled by a beautifully struck ball by Dave Charles but unfortunately this was deflected wide and thus the game ended 0-0.
