Newmarket Town were also celebrating last night after a 2-0 win at Saffron Walden Town.

The Jockeys started the game well and took the lead in the 25th minute when Lee Clift s set upRoss Paterson to score.

Newmarket created more chances but it remained 1-0 at half time.

The visitors continued to enjoy most of the possession in the second half though, and it took just five minutes for them to go 2-0 up.

Joey Abbs delivered a dangerous cross, and with pressure from two Newmarket attackers running into the area, a Walden defender could only put the ball into his own net.

Newmarket keeper George Lawton was called into action to keep out a superb shot from 30 yards as Newmarket kept the hosts at bay for a morale-boosting win.

“I’m very pleased, we defended really well,” said Newmarket boss Kevin Grainger.

“We didn’t create a lot but we dug and kept our shape.

“We broke up everything they threw at us.”
