All square in wintry Suffolk

The first team drew 3-3 at Needham Market this afternoon in a game that saw them go behind, before going 3-1 ahead but eventually drawing.

The first half was played with snow falling steadily, although not laying on the already wet pitch. It must be said that whilst the pitch was heavy, it was entirely playable and credit must go to the groundstaff at Bloomfields for their hard work in preparing the pitch.

It was the home side that drew first blood when Jeremiah Kamanzi pounced on a loose ball outside the box to fire the ball past Corey Addai. The Greens, who had found the going tough to start with, grew into the game and equalised through Josh Walker in the 33rd minute.

The second half saw a perfect start from the Greens, as Ashley Nathaniel-George scored twice, in the 50th and 53rd minutes, the second of which was a fine curling effort that gave the home keeper no chance.

However, the Greens were unable to defend their lead like they have done so often this season, and goals from Adam Mills in the 60th and 88th minutes ensured that the spoils were shared - which in truth was a fair reflection of the game.
