AFC go down in derby


AFC Sudbury’s play-off hopes suffered a dent as they fought valiantly at league-leaders Needham Market on Tuesday night before eventually losing 3-2.

A red card from Dave Wareham, for a lunge at Needham goalkeeper Danny Gay while with the ball in his hands, left AFC with an uphill struggle for the last 30 minutes, with the score delicately balanced at 1-1.
