Felixstowe II’s 6 Thetford 1
Thetford started this last away game of the season on the back foot as the hosts began strongly with some slick inter passing and secure finishing.
Jonathan King in goal did well to restrict the score line as the Thetford defence struggled to get the ball out of their half. Even the return of Craig Hall and Andrew Smith to the visitor’s side failed to link with the usual mid field penetration from
Reece Laffar and Joe Clarke.
Felixstowe pilled on the pain in the second half and even brought up their goalkeeper to take a penalty stroke. Thetford continued to press when they could, but with some robust tackling from the local side they managed
to keep a clean sheet, until the last couple of minutes when Smith grabbed a consolation goal. Thetford play their last game of the season next week at home against Ipswich and East Suffolk at 2.30pm.
