Mildenhall Town 5 Norwich United 1

TWO debutants were in the goals on Saturday as Mildenhall blazed five past Norwich United.

Tom English, signed late last week from AFC Sudbury, and Colin Vowden, brought in from Histon, were both on the scoresheet as Hall put on a five-star show.

Norwich took the lead early on but English equalised after 22 minutes following a fine through-ball from Ricky Cornish.

Central defender Vowden got his head to a Wayne Goddard free-kick on 55 minutes to put Hall ahead, before subsitute Stuart Jopling scored twice in five minutes, the second coming 10 minutes from time, as Hall pulled away and Niall Inman rounded off the scoring with virtually the last kick of the game.

Hall assistant manager Ricky Cornish said: "You've always got to be happy with five goals at home.

"We've got good players coming into the side and we're building a decent squad. We can cover most positions and it's important for a team to be able to do that. Sometimes teams can struggle if you've got one or two players missing and we don't really want to be in that situation.
