It was honours even following the Pedlars' brief trip to the Recreation Ground.

This was an intensely contested competition in difficult weather conditions.

Incident and accident all played their part in a fixture which included replacement of an assistant referee through injury, a penalty save by Swaffham keeper Lee Brooks and questionable sending-off after two yellow cards for Simon Jones.

Thetford were fortunate to have the home advantage, Swaffham defending admirably to come away from this local derby with a well-deserved point.

Swaffham have a mid-week friendly arranged for Wednesday evening (November 18, 7.45 kick off) at Shoemakers Lane against Wells Town before another local derby this weekend, when they host Downham Town in the Ridgeons League (3pm kick-off).
