Jewson League

Stowmarket 2 AFC Sudbury 3

Sudbury completed a quickfire League double over their hosts but once again the current League leaders were made to work hard for the points.

In an entertaining opening half Stowmarket made the breakthrough after 28 minutes when Jopling saved a long ball by Ratcliffe and his pass found Pannell on the edge of the Sudbury box.

Pannell's shot was turned past Nower by Yeomans. Five minutes later the Stowmarket lead was doubled with Yeomans once more on target. This time Jopling's fine turn and layoff gave Yeomans freedom in the six yard box and he made no mistake shooting home.

A one handed save from home keeper Nunn denied the visitors Claydon but the Stowmarket keeper was helpless on the stroke of half-time as a cross from Norfolk was headed home by Tracey.

In the second half the visitors predictably came out strongly and in the 55th minute Day headed against the Stowmarket bar before Nunn produced a brilliant say to deny Cheetham the equaliser.

Stowmarket were defending resolutely but Sudbury's probing finally brought them level but not until Stowmarket had squandered a great chance to restore their two goal lead when Proctor was presented with a clear sight of goal and could only shoot wide before play switched to the other end of the field where Ratcliffe crucially missed his clearance and in a flash Banya too the ball round Nunn before shooting high into the Stowmarket net.

Norfolk completed the scoring for the visitors as his late close range finish concluded the visitors fight back and kept them firmly on course for another League title.
