In this 2nd match of the season back in the 1st Division of the Empresa Norfolk League after promotion, Beccles could at least start the match on an even footing being able to field 11 players. The first half was an even affair with Beccles proving that given a full squad they could hold their own against a side that finished mid table last season. Lowestoft Railway Ist team were probably just shading it due to the number of short corners they had earned. Subsequently right on halftime Beccles keeper Lorraine Greenwood, was forced to make a good save deflecting the ball towards the side line, but it was intercepted by Railway and hit back in, and despite the efforts of the defence Railway managed to score from close range. Down to 10 players in the 2nd half due to work commitments, Beccles still managed to keep in the game with Hannah Eaton working tirelessly in both defence and attack. With 13 minutes to go Railway scored another from close range and so it finished 0-2. It was yet another great all round team effort from Beccles with their “never say die” attitude.
