FOOTBALL: Downham Town netted their first point of the season with a 1-1 draw away to Woodbridge Town on Saturday.
Manager Mark Reeve said he was disappointed not to collect three points from this match and the one against Dereham.
Karl Tansley was the solitary scorer for Downham and Reeve said a win looked on the cards around half time.
However, Downham’s fortunes changed when Jake Ogden was sent off with 15 minutes to go.
“That changed the game for us,” said Reeve, adding it left the team with little in the way of options.
“We were battling hard to get three points it was disappointing, but at least we got a point.”
Tomorrow sees the Town in Thurlow Nunn League Division One league action at home to Braintree with a 3pm kick off.
Unavailability is an issue for this match with some players on holiday and others heading for Norwich for the Sundown Musical Festival.
“We will have enough for a team but there will have to be changes,” said Reeve.
“I hope to still be competitive we have got other players. We are going to have to make changes.”
This early stage of the season still has some clubs with players involved in cricket matches as well as holiday commitments.
