Cromer could easily have scored more than the one goal against Brandon on Saturday but may have also conceded, especially in the first half. But overall the Crabs deserved the three points.

The visitors had their first chance from a wide free-kick. The ball went to Richard Williams who rose above everybody, but his header came back off the bar. Then a cross from the opposite wing went to Edwards on the edge of the box, whose superbly-struck volley was well saved by Parsons. Terrington fired straight at Corston and at the other end Parsons was again called into action.

The Crabs took the lead on 34 minutes. Tom Davies played the ball into the feet of Terrington, who excellently turned his marker and blasted into the roof of the net.

Brandon had a couple of chances to equalise before the break. Sean Brown fired narrowly wide and Williams headed over from a corner.

At the start of the second half Cromer looked the side most likely to score. Carrier cut in from the left wing but was off target with his shot. Terrington laid the ball into the run of substitute Matthew Eves but he slid the ball wide. Then Harwood put in a cross to the back post where Marsh couldn't make contact.

On 74 minutes more excellent play from Cromer saw them go close. Honeyman played the ball wide to Hunton who pulled it back for Terrington, but his shot went wide.

In the final minutes Cromer were almost left to rue their missed chances. Kent fired just wide from 25 yards and in time added on the visitors had a good shout for a penalty turned down when a cross from the right hit Cooper's arm.

Cromer Reserves suffered a heavy 7-0 defeat at Thetford Rovers.
