The 2-0 away win over Dersingham was an excellent victory for Cromer who used all their resources.

Everyone worked hard and played well and it is good to see that despite all the absentees and after the disapp-ointment of the Senior Cup, the Crabs could bounce back with such a good display.

The 2-0 away win over Dersingham was an excellent victory for Cromer who used all their resources.

Everyone worked hard and played well and it is good to see that despite all the absentees and after the disapp-ointment of the Senior Cup, the Crabs could bounce back with such a good display.

Nicky Mace made his first start for several weeks and looked solid alongside Paul Bradshaw and Sharman continued his excellent form from the reserves to slot in well on the right wing.

This can only be a positive for Chris Wigger, who will now have a lot to think about when it comes to naming his squad for Saturday's visit of leaders Wroxham Reserves (kick-off 3pm).

The match was mainly played in the middle third in the first half.

Cromer started the brighter in the second half and looked much more of a threat. Mace made a run forward from defence and fired just wide from 25 yards.

Dersingham's Gary English headed wide. Almost immediately Cromer took the lead. A corner from the right went over everyone to Bradshaw, who brought it down well and blasted into the back of the net.

Play then continued in the same vein as the first half.

But on 73 minutes some fantastic play down the left resulted in the Crabs getting a second.

Hunton got the ball on the wing and gained several yards before playing it wide to Tom Davies on the touchline.

Davies then played it back inside perfectly to Hunton, who had continued his run.

The Cromer winger controlled the ball brilliantly and coolly lifted the ball over the keeper.

In the final minutes the home side were attacking more as they looked to get two quick goals. Stuart Parsons tipped the ball away from under his bar. Then Able flicked narrowly wide from an Adam Seal cross. Tom Davies crossed to Danny Brown, who volleyed wide.

Then Brown fired straight at keeper Steve Rush before the end of the game.
