Promoted Thetford completed their league season with an emphatic 5-1 win over the bottom-placed team from Harleston Magpies VI.

Reece Laffar smashed in his first for the afternoon from the top of the circle to open his account.

Smith managed a goal after cruising past several defenders and flicking a shot which went under the keeper. Clarke and James Burt created similar chances on their right and provided Laffar with two more goals before half-time.

The second half started in a similar fashion to the first with Laffar adding another after five minutes before he grabbed another.

The tally could have been higher as Josh Laffar and William Rolfe were denied with some excellent goalkeeping.

In all a fine display of passing hockey to complete the season and the home team look in good shape to compete in the higher division next season.
