Home start for Thetford Town in Premier

THETFORD TOWN will start their return to the Premier Division of the Eastern Counties League with two home fixtures in the space of four days.

Mark Scott’s men, hoping to continue the success which saw them reach the Norfolk Senior Cup final as well as winning promotion from Division One, open their Thurlow Nunn League campaign against Wivenhoe at Mundford Road on Saturday August 4.

They are then at home again on Tuesday, August 7 in a Premier Division derby against neighbours Mildenhall Town.

The FA Cup interupts on Saturday, August 11, when Thetford travel to Godmanchester Rovers – the team who pipped them to the Division One title – before they head to Essex to play their first away league fixture at Stanway on Saturday, August 18.

Pre-season is well underway, starting with warm-up matches against Fakenham and Littleport.

The Fakenham game was abandoned after 83 minutes because of the weather after two goals from Volta Rocha had put Thetford in charge.

On Saturday Thetford won 4-2 at Littleport with goals from Tom Dew, Steve Harley, Nikoljas Kozacuks and an ‘own’. The reserves were also in action there, going down 4-3.
