Adam Johnson, Jack Crane and Daniel Tyrell challenge for the ball


Trimingham Pilgrims began the new year with a home league match against Bungay played at Woodhill, East Runton.

They took advantage of a strong wind to keep the pressure on the visitors in the first half.

On the 20 minute mark Dan Duffield chipped the ball forward for Liam Amos and although his shot was parried by the keeper Duffield followed up to give Pilgrims the lead. Four minutes later George Crane took a corner kick, the ball was half cleared and Ollie Bell chipped back into the six yard box and Adam Johnson knocked it into the net.

Pilgrims led 3-0 at the break when following another George Crane corner the ball reached Jack Crane who shot low into the net from the edge of the area.

The second half was even but on the hour a cross from the right reached Amos on the far side of the area and he laid the ball off for Luke Everson to score with a half volley to complete a 4-0 win.
