A much-improved display after a couple of poor performances saw Waveney convincingly beat Hellesdon away from home.

Waveney looked solid from the start, with Chris Bond, Andrew Hammersley, Daniel Tacon and Ryan Bloomfield rock solid in defence.

Sam Clabburn, in his last game for the club, was deputising for James Bergin and made a couple of good early clearances as Hellesdon put in some decent crosses.

Sam Allen was making his Waveney debut on the right hand side and he made a telling contribution to the team on the half hour mark.

Bradley Hough left his defender with a burst of pace and put in a great cross to the far post and Allen planted his header past the keeper for a dream start to his Waveney career.

Hellesdon continued to get frustrated as the Waveney engine room of Carl Burgess and Johnny Jarvis broke up play and supported by the lively Allen and Adam Taylor the visitors remained in control.

Waveney could have extended the lead as Ritchi High fired just over from an Allen cross. Hellesdon had a good opportunity to equalise but Clabburn made a great stop on 35 minutes before Waveney eventually cleared their lines.

After the break Waveney continued to look to hit Hellesdon on the break and the second all-important goal duly arrived on 70 minutes as Hough’s clever pass saw Taylor racing clear down the right. He kept his cool in a one-on-one situation to fire clinically past the keeper.

Michael Tacon replaced goalscorer Taylor and along with Tom Mawford both strikers worked hard in closing down and keeping Waveney on top.

The icing on the cake was applied by a wonder strike from Burgess. A great move down the left saw the ball break to Burgess in the middle of the park and he applied a pinpoint finish from 35 yards out as his perfect lob sailed over the keeper.

There were several contenders for man-of-the-match but with his wonder goal Burgess just edged out impressive debutant Allen.

On Saturday Waveney face a trip to Trafford Park as they take on Wroxham Reserves in the league.

Waveney: Clabburn, Bond, Bloomfield, Hammersley, Tacon, Jarvis, Taylor (Tacon 70), Burgess, High,(Mawford 62), Hough, Allen.
