THERE was a top-of-the-table contest in the Thurlow Nunn League as early leaders COGGESHALL TOWN travelled to Thetford Town.

And it was the fourth-placed hosts who took the honours, edging a tight and entertaining premier division contest 3-2.

Coggeshall are now third, Thetford have climbed to second and Felixstowe and Walton are top, after their 3-0 victory against Histon.

Elsewhere, BRANTHAM ATHLETIC continued their free-scoring ways as they romped to a 5-0 victory at home to Fakenham Town.

The Imps had put four past Ipswich Wanderers in the week and never looked back after Ben Newson’s first-half strike at the Leisure Centre.

Sam Newson doubled their lead and more goals followed from Sean Gunn, Jack Smith and substitute Sean Bartlett.

WIVENHOE TOWN took the lead in their match at struggling Ipswich Wanderers but ended up losing 2-1.

They broke the deadlock through Lewis Blanchett, who was played in by Jack Charnock.

But the hosts were soon back on level terms and then grabbed their winner.

FC CLACTON lost 3-1 at home to Haverhill Rovers.

Having conceded twice in the first half, they pulled one back thanks to a great goal from Wayne Chapman.

The skipper volleyed home at the far post from Billy Wales’ corner.

However, Haverhill added a third late on, shortly after Clacton had been reduced to ten men following a second yellow card for Jake Plane.

STANWAY ROVERS had no game on Saturday.

In division one, HOLLAND FC ran out 2-0 winners at Cornard United, thanks to goals from Tom Holdstock and Joe Martin, while BRAINTREE TOWN RESERVES sunk Diss Town 3-0.

LITTLE OAKLEY and unbeaten Framlingham Town drew 3-3, with Pat Tynan scoring a brace for the Acorns. Harry Mann was also on target.

HALSTEAD TOWN came from behind on two occasions to rescue a point from a 2-2 draw with Norwich CBS.

Lewis Cunliffe and Adam Hampson were on target for the Humbugs.
