Adjusting quickly to the demands of the new division they took a lead when Sam put Rhys in, and went two up when Sam crossed for Jake. Callum’s header hit the post before Harleston pulled one back before the break when a clearance rebounded off a forward into the net.
Bob’s free kick found Callum who floated a cross for Jake to head home. Harleston made it 3-2 with a low ball from the right, and though Bungay had further chances, Harleston’s pressure led to an equaliser also from the right. Sam raced away and put a shot just wide, and a series of excellent saves by Elliot kept the scores level at the end. An excellent all round performance.

The second half started badly for Halesworth with two quick goals from the visitors both coming from defensive lapses. Halesworth had increasing difficulty in keeping possession and it was no surprise to see Hemsby increase their lead with ten minutes to go on the counter attack. The game ended 4-2 to the visitors but its early days in the season. Special praise should be given to Halesworth’s new recruit Alex Curtis who contributed well and was strong in the tackles.”
