Dereham Res 1, March Town FC 0
A 38th minute goal separated the sides.
Hares manager Paul Blanchflower said: “It was an excellent free-kick straight into the top corner.
“We felt it was harsh, a generous reward. It was given as handball but it struck the upper arm and chest.
“In the first half they were the better team but in the second we were better, we just couldn’t capitalise.
“There were some solid performances from James Barwick, David Jackson and Callum Young. Everyone earned their place.”
The solid display means the same XI are likely to face Ipswich Wanderers at home next Saturday.
March: Barwick, Dunlop, Jackson, Goult, Lorraine, Gibson, Young, Pepper, S White, Brand, Blanchflower. Subs: Kamara, Day.
