UNITED failed to get the better of a Crabs outfit reduced to 10 men after 20 minutes of their Dolphin Autos Anglian Combination Premier Division match on a superb pitch.
Both teams were knocking the ball about probing for an opening when the game changed with a Cromer player was sent off, supposedly for swearing at the ref.
Acle got slightly on top for the rest of the half but didn't create many chances, including a good one just before half-time.
Within 15 minutes of the second half Cromer caught Acle cold with two quick, well-taken goals. Acle were then given a lifeline with a penalty, a harsh decision.
Acle pressed hard for a leveller, but missed
- 1 Green light for new Sainsbury's store on 850-home estate
- 2 Work begins on £3m Great Yarmouth council flats development
- 3 Drone shots show British warship anchored off Yarmouth ahead of Jubilee
- 4 Hero boxer rescues man who plunged into river to save dog

chances and some good,
solid defending from Cromer kept them out.
Cromer, after going down to 10 men, worked their socks off.
Tomorrow, Acle visit Beccles Town.
