But there was a comical situation in the Volunteer v Stowmarket Eclipse reserves match in the Trophy, when a gentleman of rather large proportions agreed to stand on the back of a pegged down portable goal.

FORMER Felixstowe Town striker Danny Bloomfield scored two goals “guesting” for Cambridge City in the Dr Martens League last Saturday.
Bloomfield, who was released from a contract with Norwich City in the spring, is on the books of Bournemouth.

CLAYDON recently held their first seniors five a side tournament. Held at their new Blue Circle Sports Ground training site entries came from as far afield as Wisbech.
The winners of the 18 34 age group came from Claydon’s own senior team, captained by Wes Ball. Runners up were Claydon Reserves.

Claydon has been successfully running junior tournaments for a number of years and following their amalgamation with Claydon Juniors it was felt that the time was right to introduce a senior tournament.
The organisers would like to thank all the teams, referees and helpers for making the day a great success and the club is already looking forward to next year.
To try and avoid the rain that affected this year’s event, it is anticipated the next one will be held in August 2003.
