It was second v third (from bottom) at Stowmarket yesterday, two sides who had only won once in the League this season. Both sides went for the much-needed 3 points and attacked in numbers, as a result it was a very open match at times. Melford found themselves two goals down early on but fought back well to win 5-2 in a good team performance with all 14 players contributing.

It’s fair to say that in recent years Melford haven’t had a reputation for being free-scoring, but it still came as a surprise to discover the last time Melford scored 5 goals in a league match was as long ago as October 2006!

Melford’s squad on Saturday included 5 players under the age of 18, and again the youngsters gave a good account of themselves. What has impressed me most about the U18 players so far this season is that they all want to get on the ball and play attractive football, a good example being Will Wingfield’s pass of the season which led to Jack Durey completing his hat-trick on Saturday.

There were impressive performances all over the pitch on Saturday with Chris Toole continuing his excellent form at centre half, alongside captain Michael Owen (who has been a much better signing than his namesake at Stoke City!). And of course Jack Durey was a constant threat and deserved his hat-trick.

The Reserves beat their Stowmarket counterparts 5-3 at Stoneylands and they are back in action on Thursday night at neighbours Halstead Town Reserves (7.45pm) while on Saturday the 1st Team face Halstead at Stoneylands in the First Division Cup (3pm) followed by the Fireworks Night (see front page of website for more details).

The U18s lost 5-1 at high-flying Stanway Rovers on Thursday but remain in a healthy league position (5th), Craig Power's side return to action at home to FC Clacton on Wednesday. ANDY CUSSANS
