Barsham played Oulton Broad at Denes High School and suffered an 8-0 defeat.

Yet again manager Nick Holmes had the headache of no regular keeper so outfield player Josh Young`s volunteered to go in goal.

At least he had the luxury of three substitute, Paul Clark, new signing Jamie Nicholson and Luke Ellis.

Barsham welcomed centre half Dan Johnstone back from injury where he partnered Cam Godbold with James Ruff and Jack Luckham as full backs. In midfield were Nick Wells, Matt King, Ali Lockley and Elliot Sculfor with Harry Frost and Aaron Godbold up front.

Barsham started well but were 3-0 down at the break and conceded five more after it.
