Ely City 1 Ipswich Wanderers 0
WANDERERS went to Ely looking for their first double of the season. In the ninth minute a speculative shot by Jamie Baker cleared the bar. A reoccurrence of Jason Burman's muscle injury gave Jason King his Jewson baptism.
Ely's first chance came after 25 minutes when Evans saved from Randall, Wanderers quickly replied when Baker headed just past the post.

The game opened up with chances at either end and another Baker effort was deflected and keeper Banthorpe cleared with an outstretched leg. Ely's Mervyn Smith looked lively up front but half-time arrived with no score. In the 60th minute Ely's Smith ran from the half-way line unchallenged and scored with a 25 yard special.
Within moments Smyth's reckless challenge gave Ely a penalty which was blazed over the bar. Ely's greater strength always looked likely to bring another goal but Wanderers youngsters battled well but could not create any chances to trouble the Ely defence.
