Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division bottom side Framlingham Town suffer home hammering against Hadleigh United
Framlingham Town are now 12 points from safety in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division after suffering their second drubbing in a week on a Saturday.
Fresh from losing 8-1 at Newmarket Town on January 26, Liam Abraham’s men slumped to a 7-2 defeat at home against Hadleigh United.
The first half was a somewhat drab affair as both teams took time to settle on a slippery surface, not aided by a bitterly cold wind.
Hadleigh took the lead in the 27th minute when Romario Dunne and Tom Driscoll combined for Kyron Andrews to put his side into a half-time lead.
The second half saw a different affair as Hadleigh upped their game with Driscoll firing in on 53 minutes.
Kieran Turner made it 3-0 just six minutes later when he fired in a long range effort, before Driscoll got his second of the contest with a header.
Driscoll completed his hat-trick from the penalty spot for the visitors’ fifth goal, while Kyle Cassell raced clear to add a sixth.
Anthony Johnson pulled one back from Framlingham soon after, but Hadleigh responded by going straight up the other end and scoring through Turner.
Johnson scored again in the dying embers but the damage had long been done.
And bottom-of-the-table Framlingham were also beaten away at leaders Histon on Tuesday, going down 4-2.
After falling three goals behind, the Castlemen got back into the game via Danny Smith and Mason Ransome, but a stoppage-time penalty from Histon’s Max York sealed the three points.
Framlingham, who have now lost 20 league matches this term, travel to Long Melford for an all-Suffolk affair tomorrow (3pm).
l After having last weekend off, Walsham-le-Willows return to action tomorrow with a home contest against Wroxham (3pm).
Walsham, who dropped down a place to sixth during their absence, go into the encounter having lost just one of their last seven games.
A win will lift Trevor Newman’s team above their third-placed visitors, who have won their last two fixtures, scoring eight times and conceding none during that time.
The reverse fixture took place at Trafford Park in late August when Wroxham picked up the points courtesy of a 1-0 victory.
