Saffron Walden Town continue to falter at the worst possible time after losing 1-0 to Great Yarmouth on Saturday.

The Bloods led the league with games in hand two weeks ago but now occupy third place, three points behind Swaffham Town and four off leaders Long Melford. With eight games remaining, Walden need to bounce back, and fast.

Saturday was the first time Walden had lost at home in 12 months. It was also the first time they had recorded back-to-back losses all season.

Following last weekend’s 3-0 loss to Swaffham, Yarmouth scored the crucial goal in the 21st minute, Connor Deeks beating Floyd Croll, to legitimise their play-off challenge.
