Four defeats in a row for Haverhill Borough in Thurlow Nunn League First Division North
Haverhill Borough saw their losing run extended to four games in the Thurlow Nunn League First Division North, following a 6-1 defeat at home to promotion-chasing Swaffham Town on Tuesday night.
Lee Martin’s side returned to action after a 10-day break and made a positive start at The New Croft 3G, with the score goalless at half time and Zak Ollington and Craig Pruden going close to breaking the deadlock for the hosts.
Swaffham took the lead four minutes after the break through a Kyle Plumb header, before Jack Martin equalised for Borough moments later in a frenetic start to the second half.
But that would be as good as it got for Borough, as Ryan Pearson regained Swaffham’s advantage from the penalty spot on the hour mark.
Cameron Watson inadvertently put the ball in his own net to put the visitors 3-1 up, with Nick Castellan, Tommy Hunt and Thomas Wagg all finding the target in the last 20 minutes to seal the points for the Norfolk side.
Martin’s men sit 15th in the First Division North table following that defeat and have another free weekend without a game.
Borough will now turn their focus away from the league and to the Suffolk Senior Cup, with a trip to First Division North rivals Ipswich Wanderers in the quarter-finals next up on February 9.
The other three quarter-final ties see Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves host Cornard United, Bourne Vale United entertain Henley Athletic, and Westerfield United go to Achilles.
