Beccles Town 4, Hindringham 2

Beccles won a thriller after being pegged back twice by a brave but struggling Hindringham side. Remblance again grabbed a superb hat-trick, taking his tally for the season to 15 in all competitions.

Manager Broxup had the luxury of picking the same starting 11 from the side that beat Brandon in the last Anglian Combination Premier Division outing, Bicker and Mayhew returned to university, leaving places on the bench for Payne, Martin and young Alex Holmes.

Beccles started the brighter. Just five minutes had passed when Peters played a lovely ball for Hurren to check inside his man and force a great save from the visiting keeper.

Beccles responded well pegging the away side back with Hurren missing a great chance when one on one and Remblance also firing a shot over the bar.

Again, Peters was standing out with his workrate and tackling along with Day and Waterman who were starting Beccles attacks well. On 20 minutes Beccles did draw level from an unlikely source with a great strike from full back Mcmorran.

Beccles won a corner, which was half-cleared to Mcmorran on the edge of the box. He hit a sweet strike, low on the half-volley, which flew into the bottom corner of the net, leaving the keeper standing to draw the two team's level.

Soon after Mcmorran came within inches of breaking the deadlock when his spectacular 35-yard drive crashed back into play off the bar, falling perfectly to Peters - who ballooned his follow-up over with the goal at his mercy.

Beccles took the lead with unbelievably Remblance's first, first-half goal of the season. Day picked up the ball in the midfield, looked up and played Remblance in on goal and he made no mistake on the half-volley from 15 yards to put Town 2-1 up.

The second half opened with both teams trying to seize the initiative. The visitors who struck first following a defensive mix-up between Barham and Wigg, allowing Scott Gray to slot home close range.

Beccles continued to look for a winner. However, with the scores still level and only 15 minutes remaining, Broxup introduced the much-talked about Alex Holmes for his senior debut at the expense off Woods.

Holmes almost made his dream impact as he appeared to put Beccles ahead following a goalmouth scramble, but as he wheeled away to celebrate his joy was short lived as the 'goal' was disallowed for a previous infringement.

However the home faithful didn't have long to wait before Remblance restored the lead with a towering header into the top corner from a Waterman corner. His summersault celebration didn't disappoint as it drew a large cheer from the Beccles support.

There was still time for Remblance to complete his hat-trick and wrap up the three points. Mcmorran fed him wide on the right, and he cut inside and beat three defenders before smashing his shot low across the keeper.

This win propels Beccles back into the title mix again as they have a game in hand on the top two. However it's back to cup action tomorrow as Town entertain high-flying Division One side Horsford in the Mummery Cup at College Meadow, 1.30 ko.
