hot Sunday morning saw Hethersett at home to Burston. The playing surface was
still very hard, making the playing conditions awkward. Hethersett were looking
forward to moving a place up the league and started well with a new formation.
It was clear that both teams were going to give 100% and it was Burston who took
the lead after 15 minutes.
had to change their formation and swapped to a more familiar 4-4-2 line up. This
proved to work in their favour when Ed Gardner equalised with a well taken
strike. This was followed soon after by Hethersett's second, another well timed
strike by team captain Danny Holman. The third came from some fine passing play
and saw James Millson hammer home a well taken shot.
second half started in the same fashion. Burston pressed forward to get back
into the game. The visitors were awarded a corner which went to the near post
and was punched into the goal by the Hethersett keeper. In the full sun both
teams were getting hot. Burston pushed for the equaliser but were kept at bay
with some fine defending especially by Ben Frosdick at left back. Herthersett
never gave up and Paul Martin scored a fine individual goal after breaking away
on the left side. This led to a frantic last 15 minutes with Hethersett holding
out for a fine 4-2 victory.
