FOOTBALL: Downham Town manager Mark Reeve is already having to readjust his target for the season after his new team made a remarkable start under his stewardship.

The Thurlow Nunn League side had become whipping boys after a string of heavy defeats but since Reeve took charge, they are unbeaten in three games and have conceded only one goal.

A penalty from Matty Calvert was enough to earn victory against Braintree Reserves on Saturday but Reeve knows they face a much tougher challenge tomorrow.

Town travel to leaders Whitton United and Reeve said: “I set targets when I arrived for the players and committee, as well as myself and we’re well on with those. Indeed, points wise I’d aimed for 10 for the rest of the season to keep us off bottom spot but we’ve already picked up seven of those so I’ll have to reassess that.

“We’ve got Whitton now and that will be a real test. We have nothing to lose, the pressure will be on them because they are expected to win and need to do so to stay in with a chance of promotion. For us, any sort of positive result will be a huge bonus.”

λ Substitute Jack Frohawk was again King’s Lynn Reserves last-gasp hero.

A week after netting a stoppage time winner at Uppingham, he did it again to earn all the Peterborough League points against Oakham United. This time he struck five minutes into stoppage time to secure a 2-1 win. Jake Clitheroe had earlier pulled Lynn level after they fell behind. James Spittlehouse was man of the match.

λ The Woottons are through to the final of the Mid Norfolk Youth League u11 Cup after a 7-2 win over Reffley Youth.

Jak Uppington 2, Lewis Bush, Harry Carter and Jake Smith put Woottons 5-0 up at half-time.

Rio Culey and Jack Royle pulled two back but they were cancelled out but second strikes from Carter and Smith.

Woottons man of the match was Nathan Kettlewell.
