Stowmarket Town Reserves saw their unbeaten start to the season come to an end after losing 2-1 at Long Melford Reserves on Saturday.

Craig Brown’s men went into the weekend top of the Thurlow Nunn Reserve League on goal difference, after picking up seven points from their first three games.

But their run at the top would come to an end at the weekend, as first-half goals from Kyle Hurley and Elliot Walker secured the points for Melford at Stoneylands.

Aiden Phair pulled a goal back for Stow in the second half, but the visitors could not find an equaliser and ended up on the losing side for the first time this season.

“It wasn’t our best performance, but I didn’t think we deserved to lose the game,” Stow manager Brown said.

“Melford are a much better side now and I think they will scare a few teams this season. I’m looking forward to the return leg at our place later in the season.”

Elsewhere, Stowmarket Town A‘s losing run in League C of the Macron Suffolk & Ipswich League continued, after tasting a 6-1 defeat at home to Bourne Vale United Reserves. Carl Bowers was on target for Stow at the Cedars Park Community Centre.

Stowmarket Town Under-18s return to action at home against Woodbridge Town Under-18s in the Suffolk Under-18s Midweek Cup at Greens Meadow this Thursday (7.45pm).
