Waveney suffered heartbreak as two late Stalham goals saw their visitors snatch all three points in Saturday’s Anglian Combination Premier Division clash at Saturn Close.

The home side had spent most of the second half camped in their opponents’ half but still came away empty handed.

Waveney failed to hold on to a lead twice as a combination of poor defending and a quick and alert striker led to their downfall.

They opened the scoring on the half hour mark when a great cross from Adam Taylor was headed home by Ritchi High for a deserved lead.

Stalham equalised five minutes later as High was caught out and Dan Camish ran clear to fire past Sam Clabburn.

Waveney struggled for the remainder of the half after this setback and it was still 1-1 at the break.

Waveney dominated the second period, with Jonny Jarvis and Chris Bond having a big influence on their side as an attacking force.

The returning Bradley Hough went close as he headed just wide before Waveney brought on Tom Samsom and Connor Swan and with 15 minutes to go the hosts took the lead.

Stalham felt aggrieved as the officials appeared to get an offside decision wrong but play continued and Bond crossed and a brave header at the far post saw Samson score.

Stalham equalised three minutes later as more poor Waveney defending was punished by Camish again.

It got worse as, with the clock ticking down, Camish smashed home a right foot shot from just inside the box after Daniel Tacon and Clabburn had got themselves in a muddle.

A game that was there for the taking had been thrown away after Waveney had battered their opponents for most of the game.

This was to prove Stewart Larter’s final game as he has taken the opportunity to manage Gorleston and the club wish him all the best and thank him for all his hard work.

Wavaney must now take stock and look to get back on track, starting tomorrow against Bradenham Wanderers.

Ole Frank Public House man-of-the-match: Johnny Jarvis.

Team: S Clabburn, C Bond, R Bloomfield, R High, D Tacon, J Jarvis, C Burgess, A Taylor, (C Swan 70), B Hough, M Tacon, T Mawford, (T Samsom 60).

Unused sub. W Flower.
