Providing much more entertainment than the scoreline suggests these two young reserve sides did justice to the inclusion of reserve teams in this division with an end to end game.
It was the home side that claimed all three points from a smart Brad Beevis strike to probably the best move of the game. Sudbury did settle the quickest and had a few half chances that mainly fell to the lively Ollie Dunlop, whose desire to get into the box was causing Dereham problems.
The breakthrough came when a move that was started by Louis Johnson and involved 8 AFC Sudbury players ended up with a superb run and assist by Danny Bloomfield leaving Beevis with the job of slotting home.
AFC Sudbury didn't have it all their own way especially in the second half with Dereham responding to strong words at half time time from former AFC Sudbury player Wayne Anderson now boss at Dereham Town Reserves. Only resolute defending by the back four led by captain Harry Seal and a couple of smart saves from Johnson kept the visitors out.
Look out for the return fixture on Saturday April 23rd you won't be disappointed..
