Soham Town Rangers overcame Ryman League Division One North playoff hopefuls AFC Hornchurch, 1-0, to maintain their positive sequence of form last Saturday.

A crowd of 198 saw Soham goalkeeper George Lawton keep the visitors at bay during a first half that was largely dominated by the Essex side.

However, the hosting Greens showed a greater attacking intent after the restart and were rewarded with the game’s only goal 14 minutes from time.

Salim Relizani sent over a cross for Ryan Sharman, who rose highest to power his headed effort into the net.

On Saturday, Soham will look to extend their unbeaten run to six league matches when they travel to Thamesmead Town (3pm).

n In the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, Mildenhall Town were beaten 2-0 at home by leaders Norwich United.

Dean Greygoose’s men hit the crossbar twice early on, but were eventually undone by second-half strikes from Mathew Blake and Adam Hippperson.

Town followed up that setback by coming from behind to snatch a share of the spoils away at Stanway Rovers, in a 1-1 draw on Tuesday evening.

Having fallen a goal down at The Hawthorns, Hall responded with Ben Yeomans adding to his recent good form with another goal to seal a point.

On Saturday, Hall are on the road again when they make the long trip to Gorleston (3pm).

n In the First Division, Ely City kept themselves in the hunt for promotion thanks to a 2-0 win away at Haverhill Borough.

Goals from Liam Griffin and James Seymour did the damage as the Robins secured their third victory in a row.
