Dereham kept up the pressure on CRC at the top of the Ridgeons Premier Division thanks to a fine 2-0 win at Woodbridge Town.

Danny Beaumont continued his fine form so far this season by bagging his seventh of the campaign early in the second half when he latched on to Scott Roberts' cross.

Roberts then got in on the act himself when he profited from good work from Kenny Reeves before sliding home to give the Magpies a two-goal advantage and move them up to second in the table.

Great Yarmouth staged a remarkable comeback in the second-half to claim a point at Mildenhall.

Sporting their new pink away kit (sponsored by Holmes Builders) to mark their fundraising support for Breast Cancer Research this season, Yarmouth never really got into the first half and went a goal down after a quarter of an hour when Dave Werthmann slammed the ball into the net from a corner.

Yarmouth brought on substitutes Fernando Vide and Ross Catchpole at half time and this turned the game on its head. They suffered the loss of Gareth Palmer who, as last man, received a straight red for bringing down John Sands as he bore down on goal again but the response from Paul Tong's team was superb.

They went on to create several real chances, one of which saw Yarmouth's third substitute Scott Woodcock, on his first game back from Gorleston, send in the cross that Jake Reed, pictured below, expertly put away for the equaliser after 63 minutes.

Woodcock then went on to hit both posts in separate incidents as the Bloaters, not content with one point, went looking for all three.
