Soham Town Rangers 3 Woodbridge Town 2
SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD Steve Bell came off the bench to score the winner with his first touch and end Soham's recent run of bad form.
Bell came on after 76 minutes, picked up a Steve Bugg through ball and cooly slotted it under the keeper.

Soham manager Ian Benjamin then threw on Bell for the final quarter in the hope his pace would trouble the tired Woodbridge defenders. Benjamin can't have thought his impact would be quite so dramatic as he ran finished with his first touch from close range.
Benjamin said of Bell: "He's a great prospect, but he's a young lad who still has a lot to learn. We have to make sure we use him at the right times." Leaders AFC Sudbury come to Julius Martin Lane on Saturday.
