Yarmouth 3, Long Melford 0

After a goalless first half, in which Scott Woodcock hit the underside of the bar, and in which visiting keeper Paul Wood made some excellent stops, Yarmouth finally ended the stubborn Long Melford resistance.

Manager Paul Tong introduced his substitutes Mark Thompson and Stewart Roach after the break.

Thompson scored first in the 58th minute, feeding on Roach's first pass to shoot under Wood's dive.
