Hadleigh 2, Dereham Town 1

Dereham dominated the first half of this Ridgeons Premier Division encounter and went into a fifth-minute lead with Nicky Howell side-footing Robbie Harris' cross in from the left.

The Magpies then had a strong penalty appeal turned down and didn't add to their tally in the first half and were made to pay in the second half.

Keeper Aaron Benstead produced a fantastic save to deny Howell a second goal before Hadleigh equalised with their first real chance of the game in the 72nd minute through a Darrius Laws header.

The home side clinched victory in the 85th minute when Chris Williams scored from the edge of the box.
