Felixstowe & Walton’s second string started their first campaign at Thurlow Nunn level at home to Downham Town in front of a healthy crowd of 141 people, writes Barry Grossmith.

Shortly before the half hour, the deadlock was broken when an impressive effort from outside the box by Isaac Bloodworth gave the visitors a deserved lead.

Ben Baxter extended the visitors’ lead on 68 minutes following a spell where Downham began to dominate possession. A number of decent saves from keeper Joe Potter, a recent addition to the squad from neighbours Whitton United, kept the visitors at bay, but Matt Bussens did manage to add a third as the final whistle approached.

Felixstowe coach Aren Howell said: “We need to trust each other with the ball and be more patient,” while captain Shane Forbes added, ‘We’re on a learning curve and we accept we missed chances.”

The team entertain Leiston Reserves tomorrow night.
