Goal bonanza for East Harling FC

Cromer Town Reserves 1, East Harling 6

HARLING started well and early pressure saw Ross Bellingham pass to Craig Skipp to finish low into the corner.

Minutes later a deep cross from Dolman was headed square by Bellingham for Skipp to head home to make it 2-0.

A great run and cross by the lively Ben Chase and there was Skipp to fire home from the edge of the penalty area to complete his hat-trick.

Good stops by Matt Terry either side of the break kept it at 3-0 but a moment of slackness resulted in a Cromer free kick from which they scored.

With Paul Mielziek dominating the midfield alongside Skipp Harling looked good and Ross Bellingham scored his first for the club with a 35 yard screamer.

Sam Dickens made it 5-1 from close range from a corner and that man Skipp got his 4th to secure a 6-1 win, and man of the match title.
