SUFFOLK Schools' newly-selected B team took time to settle at Cornard when they entertained Sussex CSFA in their first St Clement Danes League match.

After 14 minutes a hurried pass out of defence gave Dan Hency the chance to intercept and put John Steele away and give the visitors the lead from clsoe in.

Undeterred, Ian Miller (West Suffolk) at centre back tightened things up and within six mintues, the first of several Suffolk attacks, sparked off by industrious midfielder Jamie Challis (W Suffolk College), gave Peter Thompson (Claydon High) the chance to equalise.

Midfield play by both teams cancelled each other out on numerous occasions until Peter Thompson's powerful 25-yard free-kick was deflected on to the Sussex bar.
