RIDGEONS LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION

Stowmarket Town 0 Debenham LC 2

TWO second-half goals from Stuart Jopling took Debenham to the top of Division One after a combination of fine goalkeeping and the woodwork had kept the Hornets at bay.

In a lacklustre first period Charters produced a brilliant one handed save to deny Joplin but could only watch as Gedney's free-kick hit the bar and Leys cleared Pratt's shot from the rebound off the line.

After the break Jopling latched on to Norman's long ball to beat the offside trap and open the scoring. His second came five minutes from time as he converted a Turley cross.
