Thetford Town 9, Sudbury III 0
THIS was Town's first friendly hockey fixture of the season and they were instantly put under pressure from an aggressive first 10 from Sudbury.
Excellent keeping from Avery gave Thetford the time to gain some composure and start to put together some flowing hockey. Sudbury keeper Underwood was in excellent form and managed to keep Thetford at bay until a through-ball from Godbold to Scott saw the ball rifle into the back board.
Tim Thompson was in excellent form and managed to link well with Snow ending in two clinical finishes from Thompson.
A foul in the D saw a penalty flick awarded, only to see Godbold push high and wide, luckily a break moments later gave Godbold the opportunity to trickle the ball under a stranded keeper.
Buzzer quickly added to the score line with a ferocious slap from the top of the D. Thetford really started to pick up pace and slick, fast and accurate passing ranging from the defence to the forwards enabled Skitmore to round of the first half 7-0 by getting his brace.

The second half saw Thetford start to tire and the return to the long ball.
Debutants Chisman and Stavros blended well into an already formed team and later linked well with Godbold to slot in his second of the fixture. Blower, on the left ,worked tirelessly and was rewarded with a square pass from Godbold to fire home.
An excellent start to the season.
