A Jodi Murfit strike was enough to give the Seasiders all the Dolphin Autos Anglian Combination Division One points against a young Stalham side at Beach Road.

Murfit had a fourth-minute attack blocked by the visitors' defence. Both sides were struggling with a fierce cross wind. Stalham forced Fulford into a reflex save, while at the other end of the pitch Nicholls made two crucial saves following a goalmouth scramble.

Murfit broke the deadlock on 26 minutes following a handball outside the area. His free-kick gave Nicholls little chance.

On the stroke of half-time Meale intercepted a through ball as again Murfit loomed in on goal.

Stalham had the better of chances in the second period, although none were clear-cut. Wells introduced Mills and Griffin to the contest. Stalham were pushing Wells back in search of the equaliser but the home defence stood firm.

Wells Town entertain Kirkley & Pakefield Reserves on Saturday (ko 2.30pm).

Wells Reserves travelled to Thorpe Recreation Ground to play St Andrews Reserves, returning home with a share of the spoils from a goalless draw.

Wells travelled with only 12 players, so the point was well deserved. The Reserves have no match on Saturday as a re-arranged fixture was played last night.
