CRUSADERS came away with a good win to reverse the defeat inflicted earlier in the season.

Despite going behind to a goal from Mildenhall's first attack, Ely pulled level through Alex Brown's left-footed shot.

Mildenhall regained their lead, but Evan Jeckell's dipping volley and Lewis Hooks' cool finish saw Ely to a 3-2 half-time lead.

Owen Buxton, Jake Butler, Anthony Nelson and Edward Frodsham kept things tight and Sam Felton slid in to make it 4-2.

Ely Crusaders squad: J Barrett, A Brown, J Butler, O Buxton, M Everett, S Felton, E Frodsham, M Goodman, L Hook, E Jeckells, A Nelson, S Pettit.

WITCHFORD recorded an excellent friendly win against a very spirited Sutton side.

Soloman Grover grabbed a hat-trick, with the other goals coming from Oliver Short, Sam Gulliver, Nathan Ellis and a well-worked goal from George Thoday.

Sutton scored a deserved consolation goal, but Colts, lead by captain and man of the match Nathan Ellis, were superb all round.
