Stowmarket Town have had a positive few days in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, picking up six points from their two matches.

They beat Wivenhoe Town 2-0 at home last Thursday thanks to goals from Amar Lewis and Ace Howell.

And they backed that up on Saturday by thrashing FC Clacton 6-0 at Greens Meadow.

Phil Weavers opened his account for the season, while Remi Garrett, Payton Swatman, Harry Whayman, Lewis and Howell also scored.

The third-placed Old Gold and Blacks were due to face Wivenhoe away last night, host Long Melford tomorrow (3pm) and will also be at home on Tuesday against Godmanchester Rovers (7.45pm).

• It was a case of what might have been for Thetford Town against Histon on Saturday.

The Brecklanders got a 2-2 draw from the fixture at Mundford Road, but they had enough chances to claim all three points.

On Tuesday, the Needham youngsters lost 4-0 at Bloomfields to Norwich CBS.

Next on the agenda is a home encounter against Braintree Town Reserves tomorrow (3pm), followed by a trip to Wisbech St Mary on Tuesday (7.45pm).

• Needham’s win saw Team Bury drop to the bottom after three straight defeats in recent days.
