Bridgham well beaten after making a dream start

PUBLISHED: 19:48 18 September 2017

Bridgham United started the game at league leaders Yaxham well - but ended up losing 7-2.

They took an early lead when Nathan Matthews finished coolly after a pass from Tom Wood.

Bridgham made it 2-0 after 10 minutes when Wood flicked a corner home taken by Connor McCartney. Ian Harrison then pulled off a good save and the home side hit the bar but Bridgham also went close through McCartney and Wood.

The home side pulled one back on the half hour mark and within a minute had made it 2-2 and then three minutes after that took the lead after a keeper error.

The second half saw Yaxham make it 4-2 on 55 minutes while Bridgham went close through Frankie Lake. A poor final 10 minutes saw Yaxham score three more times to run out 7-2 winners.

Danepak represented the Bury Sunday League in the Norfolk FA Junior Cup with an 8-1 win against Sporting Iceni.
