TODAY'S MATCHES  (August 12)

Not the best of days with a 2-0 home defeat against Thetford for the First Team, who had Josh Collins sent off for retaliation after the Melford youngster received a suspected cracked sternum/rib. [MATCH REPORT]

And the Reserves had a disappointing start to the season with a 6-1 defeat at Halstead Town - Deklyn Roy scored the goal for Melford who had Jack Stoneham sent off after receiving two yellows.

Hopefully a better day all round next Saturday when the First Team are at home to Waltham Forest/FC Romania in the FA Cup and the Reserves visit Wivenhoe Town.

OUR CONDOLENCES   (August 11)

We are very sorry to hear that Zac Smith and Kye Mclean, both aged 18, have passed away after a road accident near Sudbury on Wednesday. 

Several of the current Melford players will have played with or against Zac over the years, as he played Youth football for AFC Sudbury and also Cornard United. Our condolences from us all to the family and friends of Zac and Kye.

RESERVES UPDATE  (August 10)

The Reserves' 2017/18 Thurlow Nunn Reserve League season starts on Saturday away to neighbours Halstead Town (3pm kick off).

The Reserves have a strong squad for the new campaign with 18 players signed on. There's obviously a cross-over at times between the two squads, with some players playing Firsts and Reserves, but to make it easier to read on the website we've named two separate squads (20 in the 1st Team and 18 in the Reserves).
