A LATE change of fixture saw the Blues take the field for the first time in pre-season training when Sheringham visited the Meadow on Monday evening.
Utilising a 20 man squad, the Blues twice came from behind in a game that ended all square at two goals each. Russell Stock and Danny Mitchell were the Town's scorers.
The game replaced the advertised friendly against Bourne Town with the Lincolnshire side pulling out at the last moment.
There is more action at the Meadow on Saturday with Diss Town, now under the guidance of former Dereham Town manager Robert Taylor, the visitors.
Tuesday evening sees another of our close neighbours come to the Meadow with Great Yarmouth Town the visitors. Saturday's game starts at the usual 3pm and Tuesday at 7.45pm.
Last season's first team squad have all re-signed and have been joined by a few newcomers.
Amongst the new faces are Dave Attridge (goalkeeper) from Kirkley & Pakefield, Jack Marsden a talented teenage left back from Gorleston and Richard Gillings a central defender who is testing his ability at this level for the first time.
Sean Blowers, who made his Blues first team debut whilst a youth team player five years ago, has now returned to the area after completing his university course and obtaining a teaching post in Norwich and should be a serious contender for a central defensive role.
A reminder to all that the club's annual general meeting takes place at the social club on Wednesday evening, starting at 7.30pm.
