LoNG Stratton will be disappointed with this 3-3 draw against St Andrews after throwing away a 3-0 lead.

There were very few chances in the first half, but after coming on as a substitute for the injured Graham Bartlett, Ricky Braddon scored with his first touch nodding in a far post cross.

LoNG Stratton will be disappointed with this 3-3 draw against St Andrews after throwing away a 3-0 lead.

There were very few chances in the first half, but after coming on as a substitute for the injured Graham Bartlett, Ricky Braddon scored with his first touch nodding in a far post cross.

The second half started with a bang with three goals in the first five minutes, Kelvin Willimott rounding the keeper to score Stratton's second and Carl Harwin putting them 3-0 up with a great free-kick into the top corner. But then St Andrews pulled one back within a minute.

Lack of communication then led to St Andrews getting a second and resulted in a sending off for Carl Harwin. Yet more communication problems led to the visitors' late equaliser by the unfortunate Lloyd Douglas, who nodded into his own net.

Stratton Glass and Windows MOM: Ricky Braddon.

Diss juniors away at Rookery Park took a team mixed with experience and debutants. Most of the Diss players were giving shots away which is often difficult playing away from home. Leading the team from the front James Biggs won 3 and 2 after being all square after nine. Adam Wright looked like he might sneak a half but went down 2 and 1 having to give 9 shots. Michael Manser and Josh Driver both succumbed to heavy defeats giving away 10 shots. Ryan Howell making his debut was going strong and was 3 up after nine but his opponent came back and in the end the match was halved. In the last match George Couchy played some great golf and almost holed in 1 at the 9th before going on to win 2 up with a fine birdie at the last.
