Regent sink fellow high-fliers and rest of today's Thurlow Nunn League news
THERE was no doubting the result of the day in the Thurlow Nunn League.
It was second versus third at the Goldstar Ground, where Felixstowe & Walton played hosts to the side hot on their heels – BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT.
And it was Regent who left the Suffolk coast in celebratory mood after a fantastic 3-1 victory.
Jake Turner opened the scoring midway through the first half and then Kevin Coyle fired in a 25-yard free-kick to make it 2-0.
Felixstowe fought back after the break and pulled one back, but Regent defended well to protect their lead and then sealed it with a cracking late goal from Ryan Salter.
Elsewhere in the premier division, STANWAY ROVERS suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to mid-table rivals Mildenhall.
Second-from-bottom WIVENHOE TOWN were also defeated but produced a battling performance in their 3-2 loss at home to high-flying Godmanchester Rovers.
Ben Connell scored both goals and gave his side an interval lead, after the ball was pulled back by skipper Marley Spindler.
Godmanchester then moved up a gear and scored three goals after the break, before Connell netted again after good work by Connor Mainstone.
FC CLACTON lost 4-0 at home to leaders Hadleigh United but the score was a harsh reflection of the game.
BRANTHAM ATHLETIC were involved in another high-scoring affair, following last week’s 6-0 setback at the hands of Felixstowe.
However, this time they managed a share of the spoils after drawing 3-3 at Thetford.
In division one, promotion-chasing HALSTEAD TOWN slipped to a 1-0 defeat at home to BRAINTREE TOWN RESERVES.
