AFC Sudbury extended their winning run in Ryman League Division One North to five matches with a convincing 4-1 success at Brentwood Town to move them up to fourth in the table.

A Terry Rymer double was added to by further goals from Kris Newby and Jordan Blackwell to wrap up proceedings.

The Yellows will be aiming to further their play-off hopes when they host Ware tomorrow (Tuesday) (7.45pm).

In the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, Hadleigh United continued their recent strong run of form with a third consecutive win, in a 2-0 success over Wivenhoe Town.

First Division league leaders Long Melford extended their unbeaten run to eight matches but were forced to settle for a share of the spoils in a goalless draw with Haverhill Borough.

Elsewhere, Halstead Town lost 3-1 at Woodbridge Town, AFC Sudbury Reserves lost 3-1 against Downnham Town and Cornard suffered a 3-2 loss to Great Yarmouth Town.

In stark contrast, table-topping Sudbury Rugby Club maintained their perfect record with a comfortable 27-0 success over Upmister sealing a 13th win on the spin.
