Thurlow Nunn round-up: Stowmarket beat Melford, Framlingham stay unbeaten
- Credit: Archant
Struggling Long Melford put up a fight against star-packed Stowmarket but fell 2-1 at home.
Out of the blue the first goal arrived after 49 minutes as Melford allowed Ollie Brown to run some 30 yards without challenge, and his shot from 25 yards hard and low nestled into the corner of the net.
On 66 minutes Melford levelled from the penalty spot, Hassan Ally got through on goal and was taken down by Phil Weavers from behind, a clear penalty.
The kick was taken by Will Wingfield and was initially parried out by keeper Bradbrook only for Wingfield to fire home the rebound from two yards.
As is almost a trademark of Melford, they presented Stowmarket with their winner, a sloppy half way line pass was given to Stowmarket and the ball quickly transferred to Josh Mayhew who fired home from the right flank.
