Team Bury 0, Swaffham Town 1

The Pedlars battled well to earn all three points in a fast and furious match at Bury.

The hosts' youthful approach could not match the experience and determination of the Swaffham defence.

Early attempts by Stephen Thompson from an Andy Hunter corner kick and Kyle Plumb came close but it took until the 28th minute to score the sole goal of the match, to seal the victory.

It came from a corner earned from a Ben Russell free kick, headed in from nine yards by Thompson, his first for the season.

The home side made some tactical changes early into the second half, but with the exception of a great save by Lee Brooks, the experience showed and at no point did it look as though the points would be lost.
