Braintree Town Reserves stretched their unbeaten Thurlow Nunn League division one run into double figures as they drew 3-3 with Wisbech St Mary.

The Young Irons had won eight and drawn one of the previous nine games, but while they stayed unbeaten, there was an air of frustration about this result.

They held a 2-0 lead at half-time after strikes from Alfie Cleal and Lewis Stantiall and held a two-goal lead at 3-1 after the break when Joe Jones was on target.

However, the Young Irons were pegged back by the visitors and were a touch fortunate to not concede a fourth at the end as valuable points slipped through their grasp.

Elsewhere in division one, HOLLAND FC were beaten 2-0 at second-placed Whitton United and there was a 4-1 loss for LITTLE OAKLEY at leaders Woodbridge Town.

The Acorns had held their high-flying hosts to just a single goal in the first half as they trailed 1-0 at the break to a Ryan Keble strike.

But two Mark Ray goals – one from the penalty spot – made it 3-0 and although Oakley did get on the scoresheet, Matt McKenzie wrapped it up with a fourth goal for the Woodpeckers.

HALSTEAD TOWN were left frustrated for a second consecutive weekend.

Having seen their division one fixture abandoned at Swaffham Town the week before due to a floodlight issue, the Humbugs' hopes of getting a game at Debenham LC were hit by a waterlogged pitch.
