A header by Hunter following a corner from the left put Swaffham ahead after 12 minutes, but Hadleigh competed equally from then on. Hadleigh continued to push to find an equaliser, with Gresham going closest just before half time when Butters pushed a goal-bound ball behind for a corner.

Hadleigh levelled on the hour, after Swaffham's keeper got into a muddle with his defenders leaving an open goal for Myhill to score.
