Young Pedlars chase Championship glory
Following a hard fought battle away to Woodbridge Town last Monday, the Young Pedlars earned their place in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League Championship Final. A single goal split the sides, Tommy Hunt playing Korben Willis through in t he thirty fifth minute for a non-on-one with the keeper, Willis slotting home with style. Woodbridge never really threatened the Swaffham defence until mid-way through the second half, bringing the best out of Aaron Watson, a fine save to keep his clean sheet. Swaffham will now meet the winners of the South Division, AFC Sudbury in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League Championship Final, to be played at Diss Town (Brewers Green Road) this Friday, kick off 7.30pm. Come and cheer the boys on and give them an extra twelfth man boost, adults £3.00, children and concessions £2.00.
Although not the most rewarding season on the pitch for the First team, it was a proud moment to discover that the team were joint winners with Newmarket Town of the Thurlow Nunn League, Integrity in Football Award. A tribute to the behaviour and fairness displayed by the players and management team throughout the season, well done to Paul Hunt and his squad of players who have been a credit to the Town throughout this season. Swaffham Town FC would like to thank all of our sponsors this season and trust that we will build on the good work undertaken and come out fighting for season 2017/2018. Special thanks to Club Sponsors Narford Scaffolding and the George Hotel and Greyhound Inn for after match refreshment.
