Match Report v Stowmarket (Suffolk Premier Cup)

LONG MELFORD 0 - 1 STOWMARKET TOWN

SUFFOLK PREMIER CUP SECOND ROUND - WED 09 OCTOBER

PICTURED: Dan Swain made his 150th appearance for the club in tonight's Turners Hyundai Suffolk Premier Cup tie.

Although it's not quite David v Goliath, it's fair to say these two clubs operate at very different levels.

To their credit Melford gave the Thurlow Nunn Premier leaders a good run for their money. However a Christy Finch goal around the hour mark was enough to ensure there was no cup upset at Stoneylands tonight.

In front of a decent crowd of 138, which was boosted by large away support, Stow had plenty of possession in the first half but Melford defended well.

However the visitors did go close on a couple of occasions. Dan Smith made a goal-line clearance and Matt Walker the Melford keeper was called into action to make an impressive save from a Dave Cowley free-kick.

At the other end of the pitch Nathan Rowe couldn't quite get on the end of a cross to the far post.

Into the second half and Melford's Jamie Griffiths had a penalty appeal turned down.

The decisive moment of the match came in the 60th minute when Robbie Sweeney's cross was finished by CHRISTY FINCH to put Stowmarket ahead.

There were chances at both ends after this but no further goals. 

Melford's four-match winning run at Stoneyands is over, but they went out of the Suffolk Premier Cup with pride intact.

LONG MELFORD: Matt Walker, Dan Smith, Ben Judge, Dan Swain, Ross Waugh, Anthony Waugh, Nathan Rowe, Jacob Brown, Steve Adams, Jamie Griffiths, Callum Hemson

Subs all used: Sam Bayliss, Jake Jackson, Archie Pether

Attendance: 138
