The Pedlars started against the wind but did not demonstrate the recent form they have been aspiring to.
A first-half penalty miss did not help matters with the score 4-2 to the visitors at half time.
Things did not improve in the second half for Town, with the wind lulling and a second Swaffham miss from the spot! The final score was a crashing 7-3 to Oulton Broad.
A disappointing performance by Swaffham which did see Stephen Aspery, Lee Frost and Keith Polski all net and bringing Keith's seasons tally to 17.
It is hoped this will act as a wake-up call in preparation for Monday's Norfolk Junior Cup.
