NEWTON Flotman produced a workmanlike performance to draw with Beccles Town Reserves at home to take their unbeaten run in the league to four games.

Beccles took the lead when a wonder strike from inside the centre circle cannoned off the bar and fell to the feet of an onrushing centre forward to tap home with the Flotman defenders caught flat-footed.

NEWTON Flotman produced a workmanlike performance to draw with Beccles Town Reserves at home to take their unbeaten run in the league to four games.

Beccles took the lead when a wonder strike from inside the centre circle cannoned off the bar and fell to the feet of an onrushing centre forward to tap home with the Flotman defenders caught flat-footed.

This was to be a wake-up call for Newton and they rallied well to equalise through a Mark Appleton penalty and then took the lead when a fantastic move involving Mark, David Burgess and Tom Bridges resulted in the latter powering the ball home with his head for what was probably one of the goals of the season in terms of play.

The second half was a tight affair with both teams creating, and then missing chances.

The Horsemen were again guilty of failing to put the game to bed and Beccles were rewarded when they forced the ball over the line from a set piece to level the score. Man-of-the-match: Jake Clifford.
