Marlingford 1, Freethorpe 5
AFTER the previous week's disappointment Freethorpe travelled to Anglian Combination Division Four rivals Marlingford with six players unavailable. Freethorpe prepared themselves for a tough game as always at Marlpit Lane and every player contributed superbly to the team cause.
Hurley, making his first start of the season, got Freethorpe off to a great start - heading home powerfully from a Lawton cross after just eight minutes.
Smith doubled the lead just five minutes later with a fortunate cross/shot which caught the keeper off guard and looped over the keeper straight into the net.
Marlingford fought back into the game and reduced the arrears on 15 minutes with a good move from midfield.
The second half saw Freethorpe up the tempo and score their third goal on the hour mark when Barber slotted home from the penalty spot when Hurley was felled in the box.

The hard-working Read deservedly scored a great goal to put the game beyond any doubt and Hurley scored his second and Freethorpe's fifth with five minutes remaining from a good cross from Mcmartin.
An excellent team performance against a hard-working Marlingford side. The work-rate and effort was
back to what is expected from Freethorpe sides.
