THURLOW NUNN LEAGUE FIRST DIVISION

Dereham Town Res 2

Debenham LC 2

Opportunities came thick and fast in the first half, but the Hornets, despite some good passing which had Dereham chasing shadows, lacked the killer instinct, although they did test the keeper on several occasions.

But it was the home side who took the lead, somewhat against the run of play, early in the second half when Debenham lost possession in midfield.

Debenham soon responded. When the keeper flapped at a cross from Luke Austin, the ball found Tom Fenner. He swiftly angled a deep centre to Steve Fenner, who headed over the keeper for the equaliser.

The Hornets went ahead when Jake Gathercole topped off a surging run for Steve Fenner to steer home his second.

Dereham hit back immediately to ensure the points were shared.
