Town leading the way
Harleston Town’s impressive start to their debut season at Step 6 continued last weekend with a convincing 4-1 home win over Leiston Reserves.
The victory – Harleston’s fifth from seven outings in 2018/19 – has left them top of the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North standings, two points clear of Mulbarton Wanderers.
Adam Gusterson’s team fell behind early on to Leiston’s second string, but they drew level in the 21st minute when Nathan Page exchanged passes with Nathan Stone before finding the back of the net.
After that Harleston took control of proceedings and eventually got themselves in front just before the break courtesy of Sam Borrer, who diverted in a shot from team-mate Connor Delaney.
However, Delaney did not have to wait too long to get his name on the scoresheet when in the 58th minute he made the most of being expertly teed up by substitute and summer signing, Danny Camish.
And the scoring was completed with two minutes left on the clock as Camish was once again heavily involved, setting up Nicky Howell to steer in his first goal of the campaign.
Harleston will aim to continue their good run of form when they travel to March Town United tomorrow (3pm).
The Cambridgeshire side are currently 14th, having won one of their opening four matches.
* Last season’s two matches between Debenham LC and Norwich CBS produced a hefty 13 goals.
But they shared just two evenly between them in Saturday’s 1-1 draw.
Lamell Howell was on target for the travelling Hornets, taking his goal tally for the season to five in six appearances.
Tomorrow, Leon Moore’s men will play host to newly-promoted Mulbarton, who have started in positive fashion and are only being kept off the summit by Harleston (3pm).
And that is followed on Tuesday by a trip to take on neighbouring Diss Town (7.45pm).
Debenham head into the fixtures sitting in 10th place with two wins, two draws and two defeats from their six outings.
New signing Kieren Joseph could feature in the side, having joined up with Debenham from Stowmarket Town.
