HARWICH and Parkeston continued their unbeaten run with a 3-2 win over Great Yarmouth Town, writes COLIN ROGERS.

The Shrimpers were victorious at the Gwinnell & Sons Royal Oak to go sixth in the Thurlow Nunn League first division north table.

Harwich enjoyed an unbeaten league run in September, registering six wins and a draw.

The hosts started well, forcing Town goalkeeper Reuben Lane to make two fine saves, firstly from Liam White and then also thwarting Alfie Canning.

Harwich continued to impress and were rewarded when White played the ball into the path of Jamie Eades who laid it off for Luke Mayhew to clinically finish, for a well-worked goal.

But Great Yarmouth equalised when George Couzens pounced on a defensive error to net a well-taken equaliser.

This signalled a spell when Yarmouth gained the initiative and they went in front through Jesse Fenn's header.

Canning was in impressive form for Harwich, starting the move that put the Shrimpers back on level terms.

The youngster finding Luke Mayhew who played a one-two with Eades before scoring his 11th goal of the season with a shot that went in off the post.

It had been an entertaining first half and Canning featured again with a free-kick which was neatly headed home by Tyler Sullivan for the Shrimpers to go in at the break with a 3-2 lead.

After the restart, Lane continued to excel in the Great Yarmouth goal, pulling off another two outstanding stops, firstly tipping Jamie Beecham's shot around the post and then White's effort over the crossbar.

After the thrills of the first half, the goals dried up after the break but the match remained absorbing with the battle for midfield supremacy.

In the final ten minutes, Yarmouth made a determined effort to salvage a point but central defender Mitchell Knight marshalled his troops well.

That, together with goalkeeper Brad Cook's sound handling in the air, ensured that Harwich emerged victorious.

Harwich are without a game on Saturday and instead the club's attention will focus on their under23 team who entertain Bury Town under-23s at the Gwinnell & Sons Royal Oak, kick-off 3pm.
