UNDER grey skies groups three and four battled out their respective sections with Needham Market and Ipswich Wanderers PASE coming through as victors.

Needham's opening match against Martlesham was a close affair with the Jewson outfit just pipping SIL Division Four Martlesham by 3-2. Goals from Hawes, Hazelton and M Wake were just enough to beat Aza Roe's two.

The Belstead Arms all-action approach brushed aside Ransomes with the Coote boys, Craig and Andy, scoring in a 2-0 win. Group Four favourites Leiston Town opened with a tight 2-1 win over Woodbridge Athletic, with Fryer and Chinnery's goals just good enough to stave off Leech's reply for Athletic. Ipswich PASE always looked to have the better of Bramford B as D Feering and Pack scored in a 2-0 win.

Needham stayed on the winning trail with Hazelton and B Wake scoring in a 2-1 win over Ransomes with Ewers replying. Belstead Arms found the resolute Martlesham more of a handful and although leading through M Lowe, Martlesham battled back and scored through A Row to gain a creditable 1-1 draw.

Leiston Town lost to Bramford B 2-1 with the village lads scoring through Clennell and Potter before Chinnery got one back for Leiston.
