Next Home Match

Thetford Town are the visitors to Stoneylands today in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division. Kick off is 3pm at Stoneylands, New Road, Long Melford (CO10 9JY).

All support for both sides is very welcome, and with two of the division's in-form sides going head to head (2nd v 3rd in the form table) this should be an entertaining game for neutrals too. 

ADMISSION PRICES: Admission prices including a free programme are £7 or £4 concessions.  Concessions are Senior Citizens (over 65) and schoolchildren. 

FOOD & DRINK: Deb's Diner will be open and we’ll have Nethergate Craft Lager and Suffolk County Ale on draft in our Stoneylands Bar. 

WEATHER FORECAST: Dry with light winds of 4mph , around 7° at kick-off, .

LEAGUE POSITION & FORM: 

Long Melford (2nd): W W W W W D 

Thetford Town (13th): W L W W W W 

MATCH PREVIEW: Thetford Town, in a similar pattern to Long Melford, didn’t get off to a good start this season but have really turned things around in recent weeks. Since the appointment of Matt Morton as player/manager Thetford have climbed the table to 13th, winning their last 4 league matches. 

The difference between Thetford’s results now and at the start of the season shows what can happen when things click into place on the pitch and confidence is high. 

It’s the same at Melford, only two months ago the Villagers had just lost 9-1 and were second from bottom, with 3 points from 5 matches. The league table looks very different now, as the midweek draw with FC Clacton (another of the league's in-form teams) took Melford up to 2nd in the Thurlow Nunn Premier table.

THE MANAGER'S VIEW:  "Our record run of league victories came to an end here on Wednesday night, and we knew it wasn’t going to last forever but for it to come to a close with a draw and a valuable point to take us to the club’s highest position of second in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division was the best way for it to happen.

Thetford are always a very strong side and tough to play against, and though they started the season a little slowly, they have picked up lately. They were at the bottom of the table when we began our run of wins with the victory over Wroxham here at the end of September, but they have since won five of their eight games catapulting them up to mid-table, so this promises to be a very good game between two in-form outfits.  "
