Sheringham 4, Beccles 1

Following a midweek reversal at North Walsham, Beccles travelled to struggling league champions Sheringham hoping for a win to kick-start the run-in to the end of the season.

With manager Mick Broxup having to cope with more call-offs just before kick-off, Beccles again were forced to reshuffle the pack.

Nick Day started at right-back, with Danny Compton moving into midfield.

Beccles started sluggishly and Sheringham soon took control. Kristian Gleave shot them into the lead, which was soon doubled when Jamie Clarkson was given the freedom of the visitors' defence and strolled through to side-foot number two. Beccles showed very little enterprise and with half-time approaching, had few worthwhile efforts of which to speak.

The second half brought two more goals for Sheringham, scored by Thomas Graver and Steven Jordan.

At last Beccles began to cause a few problems, albeit a bit late in the day, and Jason Clarke brought some excitement to the proceedings when he finally slotted home for the visitors.

After that the game petered out, leaving Beccles with a hugely disappointing 4-1 defeat.

The Reserves, boosted by several youngsters, notably young Charlie Mattocks, unluckily lost 1-0 to Newton Flotman. Tomorrow, the Reserves travel to Aylsham.
