RIDGEONS PREMIER DIVISION

Norwich United 2 Soham Town Rangers 1

SOHAM'S 15-match unbeaten run came to an end in Norfolk after a disappointing display.

Norwich took the lead on 14 minutes, but some smart thinking from Steve Bugg allowed Soham to level a minute later.

Bugg played a quick free-kick through to Andy Furnell, who had the simple task of slotting home from close range.

In a limited second half, the only action of note was the decisive goal on 68 minutes. The unfortunate Andy Coleman looped a ball played back into the box into his own net to give Norwich their third successive win.

The match also marked Rob Allis' last appearance in a Soham shirt. The midfielder has since moved to America.

Soham manager Ian Benjamin said: "We let ourselves down as the two teams above us in the table lost.

"It was a very disappointing performance and hopefully it won't happen again this season. We did all the wrong things and individuals tried to win the game on their own.

"Norwich have signed a few players and I knew we were in for a tough game. On their performance, they are a better side than their league position suggest.
