Have your say



Thetford Town 10 Cornard United 0

THETFORD Town took advantage of an understrength Cornard side to record their biggest league win in 30 years winning 10-0.

Town took the lead on five minutes when Bruno Tavares powered home a 25 yard free-kick, followed by a Matt Dixon penalty on 15 minutes.

Town were camped in the Cornard half and Dixon made it three on 20 minutes with a run into the box and a good finish.

Within a minute, Town had scored a fourth through Valter Rocha.

Cornard had an effort saved by Ian Fancett before Dixon completed his hat trick on 27 minutes.

The sixth followed soon after when a solo effort from Tavares was scored at the near post.

Town’s seventh came when Tavares hit the bar and Steve Harley followed up with a pass to Dixon for his fourth, leaving his side with a commanding 7-0 lead at the break.

But for some excellent saves from the Cornard keeper, Town would have been in double figures much earlier.

Two goals from Harley — one an excellent solo effort — and Nathan Szyszlyk completed the rout in the second half.

Thetford: Fancett, Morphew, Howard (Davies), Carter, Piggott (Mann), Tavares (Szyszlyk), O’Donnell, Cusack, Harley, Dixon, Rocha.

n Tavares and Szyszlyk scored in Thetford’s 2-0 win over Downham Town on Tuesday.
