Newton Flotman 0, Aylsham 0

Newton Flotman arrived at their makeshift home at Earlham Grove having not played for seven weeks and eager to kick-start the second half of their season which had tailed off a little bit towards the end of 2009.

For 45 minutes Flotman played as if there hadn't been an annoying onslaught of snow and rain throughout January and touch, passing and work rate were all of a pleasing standard.

It was an enjoyable watch, with Bircham causing many problems down the right, Cooke throwing himself into every challenge and Mace and Mark Appleton combining on several occasions to create chances that were narrowly missed.

In the first half Flotman dominated, played good football and created chances but couldn't do the all-important thing and put the ball in the back of the net.

Aylsham got more into the game in the second half and managed to create a couple of half chances, the best of which clipped the bar on the way over, but Clifford remained untested throughout the game due to tough defending and a particularly commanding performance from man of the match Sutcliffe who, on this display, seems to be back to his very best.
