GRUNDISBURGH joint manager Kevin Cunningham said efforts would now be increased to win the Metaltec SIL and Omnico Cup double after losing out on a possible treble.

“We are now more determined than ever,” said Cunningham, who runs Grundisburgh with Micky Squirrell.

“We did well in the first half and at times played some exceptional football, but after the interval we did not get the ball down and play.

“We hit the woodwork twice, but at the end of the day you cannot cater for two individual errors at the other end of the field.”

Star striker Glen Driver received his runners-up medal in his socks after throwing his boots high into the Portman Road stands after the final whistle.

“I think it is time to hang up my boots,” said the free-scoring Driver, who was Leiston's player/manager at the start of the season.

Fellow striker Julian Beaumont was after a hat-trick of Senior Cup wins with Grundisburgh and it remains to be seen whether he gets another chance.
