Scole need to start putting their chances away
- Credit: PA
Scole, for the second week running, were left to rue a stack of missed chances as they dropped two Anglian Combination Division One points.
In what is becoming a familiar tale Scole bossed the possession and should have had much than a one goal advantage at half-time following James Harrison's header from a good Nathan Ireland free-kick delivery.
After a slow start to the second half they once again created a glut of opportunities but just couldn't find the killer touch.
Aylsham got an equaliser from a rare foray forward but Scole retook the lead when debutant substitute Chris Collins-Reed, with his first touch after replacing Tom Green, nicked the ball off the centre half and put in a decent cross for skipper Ben Norton-Hugman to put away.
But following a mixture of great goalkeeping from the young Aylsham custodian and wasteful finishing Scole could only draw as Aylsham added a second late in the half. Scole are performing well but badly need to kill teams off when they are dominating.

Harleston Town joined Norwich CEYMS at the top of the Premier Division table thanks to a 6-3 win at Stalham Town.

Long Stratton edged out Wroxham Reserves at Manor Road as they won 2-1 courtesy of goals from Ross Bilham and Adam Race, with Billy Wren scoring for the Yachtsmen's second string.
