Last Saturday Beccles Town entertain league leaders Dersingham Rovers, who were soon under pressure from a lively home attack.
Only a fine block from Armit in the visitors' goal prevented Ant Martin from opening the scoring. Beccles had the lion's share of play but missed several chances until just before the break.

That was game, set and match to Beccles as the visitors had not looked likely to score, although creating several good chances.
Alan Remblance went close with a late effort but Dersingham were saved by a post and Beccles' second 2-0 win in two matches lifted them to a more comfortable mid-table position.
