What a difference a week can make! Attleborough lined up at full strength against Corton and won comfortably, 3-1.
But the game didn't start well, with the referee awarding Corton a penalty in the first few minutes after a very dubious hand-ball by Mark Whitmore. Corton took full advantage to take an early lead. This seemed to inspire Boro, with three goals coming before half-time. First Olly Ramsbottom beat the offside trap to slot the ball past the advancing keeper, then Phil King received the ball in the six-yard box and managed to beat the defender twice before scoring. This goal was dedicated to his close friend Lenny, who died recently.
A pin-point cross from Paul Suggit found the head of Phil King, who knocked it across the area for Andy Cunningham to score from close range.
The second half was complete pressure from Corton, but the back four looked very strong.

However, when the defence was breached, James Sillet was in fine form, making some very good saves.
He played most of last season with the Reserves and was called up as Barry Wells was out injured. Although being very nervous at the start, he proved how valuable he will be to the side.

With continued intense pressure, Boro made some changes with Danny Whitman and Lewis MacKeral coming on to shore up the defensive capabilities. Even manager Fuller got three minutes at the end to count the clock down.
