Bungay Town 2, Martham 0

The Black Dogs rounded off their Anglian Combination division one season with a victory at a sunny Maltings Meadow on Saturday.

It ends an up-and-down season, so a mid-table finish is a reasonable result – they could finish seventh if Holt lose their final game by two goals on Saturday.

Lowly Martham gave them a run for their money on Saturday though, and probably had more possession overall, but two good finishes were the difference as stand-in keeper Harvey Harris kept a clean sheet - Bungay’s 10th of the season.

Harris had to make two good saves in the opening minutes, first a fine diving save from a header from a corner, and then flying across goal to tip a goalbound shot over.

But Bungay took a 10th minute lead as Alex Shreeve found Jack Child down the right, and he cut in past a defender before firing a great left-footed shot inside the far post for his sixth goal of the season.

Martham fired one shot over the bar before Sammy Allen found Child who tested the keeper with a shot he could not hold, before it was cleared.

Child turned provider in the 29th minute as he got to the by-line and his cross gave leading scorer Shreeve an easy header for his 18th of the season.

The Martham keeper made a fine fingertip save from Connor Doddington's goalbound shot in the 32nd minute, but before the interval Martham hit the underside of the bar, with Harris grabbing the rebound.

The second half lacked much goalmouth action.

Martham again hit the woodwork, and Harris made a good save to keep out a snap shot.

Jayden Dance brought a good save from the keeper after good work from Callum Rudkin.

Black Dogs’ left back Adam Bray completed the season ever-present in the 30 games, and put in another sound performance.

The club’s presentation night for senior teams is on Saturday, May 13.
