The best way to keep up to date with AFC Sudbury

Reserves Win


There was a good sized crowd to see this local derby on a chilly evening at Blackhouse Lane.

The first half finished with neither side able to break the deadlock but it was a hard fought affair.

The home side took the lead when a shot evaded AFC keeper Luca Collins after taking a deflection. The young Sudbury were not deflated and soon equalised through Nathan Read.

A mistake with a back pass saw the visitors take the lead as Liam Bennett took advantage to slide the ball home.

With time running out and the hosts pushing forward they were caught out in stoppage time as Adam Hanson ran from the half way line to score the third goal.

A good win for the club against their neighbours.


Friday football for AFC Reserves and a very short journey for everyone concerned as they travel to Blackhouse Lane to take on Cornard United.

It should be an interesting contest with both sides being so close in the Thurlow Nunn First Division. AFC are currently in twelfth place on thirty-two points and Cornard a place lower with thirty-one points, both sides have completed twenty-seven games.

Danny Laws and Dave Cannon (pictured) are sure to put out a strong side with local pride at stake against a Cornard side that have improved greatly in the past few months under their new management team.

Kick off is 7.45pm, why not go along and give the young players your support.
