Seasiders’ lead now six points
Wells Town, one of only two teams in the whole of the Anglian Combination still unbeaten, remain six points clear of Wymondham at the top of Division One with a game in hand after an impressive win at Bradenham Wanderers at the weekend.
The Seasiders on Saturday entertain a Sprowston Athletic side eight places below them, kick-off 2pm at Beach Road.
Bradenham Wanderers 1, Wells Town 2
THE Seasiders travelled to Hale Road to face an improving Bulldogs side who had won their last four matches with some good displays.
Wells knew they were going to be put to the test if they were to return with points in the bag.
Wells Town forced several first-half corners as they searched for a breakthrough, which arrived after 30 minutes play.
From a Campbell flag-kick, Grocott, unmarked, powered his header past Butters.

The best chance for the home side to level the match fell to Bush, who found himself with only Molyneux to beat. However, the final shot was well wide of the target.
On the hour Wells were awarded a penalty for hand-ball, Sutherland-Gray converted, sending Butters the wrong way.
Bradenham started to push Wells back and create chances and the Seasiders’ defence worked hard clearing the attacks as the Bulldogs looked to reduce the arrears.
On 80 minutes Wanderers were awarded a penalty which Bush converted.
This lifted the home side and they created several chances to level the match, Bush, Melton and Frost all missing clear-cut chances.
Wells have won 14 of their 15 league games, drawing once, netting 47 goals to 17 conceded.
They have 43 points to Wymondham’s 37 from 16 games. Long Stratton lead the chasing pack with 32 points from 18 matches of a 28-match season.
