Bungay open their Anglian Combination Division One campaign - and return to senior football after a seven-year break - with a trip to Long Stratton on Tuesday evening.

Bungay put in a solid performance to convincingly beat their visitors, who are the holders of the Suffolk Junior Cup, 4-0.

Black Dogs manager Richard Daniels again rotated 17 players, including new signings Paul Folkard from Long Stratton and Nick wilson from Barsham.

Bungay opened the scoring after 17 minutes, Tom Amiss converting a penalty after the impressive Kai King was tripped.

King himself made it two after 27 minutes, deftly chipping the keeper from the edge of the area after Folkard's shot had been blocked.

Home keeper Jimmy Bligh pulled off a sharp save from a rare Old Newton attack.

Bungay had the bulk of possession in the second-half but had to wait until the 76th minute for their third, King again chipping the keeper after beating the offside trap.

Luke Field scored Bungay's fourth with five minutes remaining, bundling home the rebound after his weak penalty was saved.
