Cromer Town 3, Blofield United 3

WHEN Anglian Combination championship chasers Blofield came to town, the Crabs were forced to make changes with Ben Sharman coming in to the starting 11 at right back, writes Richard Cox.

Although Cromer had more of the ball in the opening period, Blofield took the lead. The ball was lumped over the top, not cleared and Danny McKail nicked it and slotted past Parsons.

Cromer continued to dominate and got the equaliser on the half hour mark. Blofield's defence failed to clear and the ball fell for Tom Davies to fire home.

Liam Davies played a one-two on the edge of the box before his shot was pushed away by Woodcock. From the save the ball went to Darren Terrington who was denied by a superb diving save at his feet.

At the beginning of the second half McKail saw his shot deflected wide, then Lee Skoyles' header was just off target.

The Crabs took the lead on 57 minutes. Paul Bradshaw headed down from a Tom Davies corner and Terrington had a simple finish.

On 85 minutes the Crabs scored a third. Eves picked the ball up on the left wing and cut inside past anyone in his way and then from 20 yards found the bottom corner.

With less than five minutes left a tame shot from close range was spilled by Parsons and Dan Wynne had an easy tap-in. In the closing moments Blofield bombarded the Cromer goal and grabbed an equaliser through McKail.

A lack of concentration in the final minutes from Cromer proved very costly. In a game that they dominated they came away with just a point.

On Wednesday the Reserves picked up all three points with a 2-0 win at home to Thorpe Rovers. Shaun Cameron and Jimmy Parkin scored the goals. Then on Saturday they held leaders Bradenham to a 2-2 draw with goals from Liam Davies and Tom Davies.
