Mens 3rd Team vs Dereham 2nd Team (Away (L) L 0-1)
After an enforced week off Magpies men’s third team got back into action against Dereham 2nd team. Setting out to be well disciplined, organised and hard to beat the travelling team delivered on all of those things keeping chances of their opponents chances to a minimum. With the experienced pairing of Taylor and Brice looking on top of their game. When Dereham did manage to play round the Magpies defence it was debutant Chris Routes in goal who kept them out.
Slightly shading the first half play the home team had a goal lead to show for it with the experienced Mark Baybrook scoring from a broken down short corner.
Unusually for Magpies their forward play was not up to the usual standard and although this was identified and tackled after half time if proved to be a day where goals would not come. The closet attempt being when man of the match Dickon Taylor hit the post.
So the promoted third team, competing but still looking to put points on the board.
