The reserves made the trip to Martham for their first league game in 3 weeks and came away with a comfortable win. Starting with Jack Stevenson as stand-in keeper as Sam McDowall had been delayed with Ali Bannon on the left Scole still took control of this match right from the start but were not being relaxed when on the ball enough to make things easy for themselves. Scole took the lead after 10 minutes when a Matty Anderson free-kick was saved by the keeper but Jon Campion was quickest to react and scored a worldie from 2 feet. After 20 minutes the visitors keeper appeared and Scole soon increased their lead when Anderson slotted home after being put through by Tom Green. Martham were pushing forward and a through ball found the centre forward lobbing the on-coming Mcdowall to pull one back. Scole knew that they had to increase the pressure again but it was Martham who came close from a header before Anderson scored Scole's third from a pass from Marcus Rolingson to go in at halftime 3-1 up.
Scole were getting dragged into a verbal war with the home team in the first half and went out for the second period in more focused mood, Matt Heuschneider was fouled in the penalty box and Anderson scored his hat-trick from the spot in the very first minute. It was soon 5 when Tom Green tapped home from a Nathan Doe run down the left. Green soon scored his personal 2, 3 and 4 goals to make life comfortable for the visitors and Anderson wrapped up the scoring in the last minute for his own fourth goal and Scole's ninth and claiming the man of the match on the day as well.
