Furlong’s wonderstrike good enough to win it for Harleston

PUBLISHED: 16:56 28 March 2017 | UPDATED: 16:56 28 March 2017

A very tight game was settled by a Ben Furlong wonderstrike from 35 yards with 10 minutes to go.

That effort was enough to win the game for Harleston Town at home to Norwich Ceyms 1-0 and keep alive Town’s very slim title hopes alive.

Saturday’s tussle proved a very even game which could have gone either way, with Will Viner keeping Town in the game at times with some great saves.

Leaders’ Spixworth’s leading scorer Luke Tuttle is averaging more than a goal a game in the charge for the Premier Division title.

The former Dereham man hit a hat-trick in their 3-0 win over reigning champions Acle on Saturday, making it 24 goals on 22 league appearances.

It leaves Spixworth eight points clear of Harleston, who have a game in hand.
