Wanderers fail to handle Soham

LOCAL SOCCER: Action from the FA Cup, the Suffolk Premier Cup and the Jewson League cup competitions.



Ipswich Wanderers 0 Soham 2

SOHAM deservedly progressed to the next round in a match that they dominated. The fast-raiding visitors caused Wanderers problems from the start and home keeper Stannard denied Bugg after just three minutes.

Soham went ahead on 72 minutes when Chatters crossed to the far post and Bugg headed home. Wanderers tried to respond and Webster produced an excellent save to deny substitute Smy before Soham sealed the win when Rutter netted from close range.

AFC Sudbury 5 Harefield 0

AFC SUDBURY earned a double bonus with their victory in last night's FA cup second qualifying round replay. They earned a home third-round tie against Walton & Hersham and picked up prize money of £7,500.

The opening goal came after 16 minutes, Claydon breaking on the right to cross for Bennett to knock the ball back in with Betson forcing the ball home at the second attempt.

Claydon put the home side further ahead with a sensational goal. Picking up a throw-in, he breezed past a defender before unleashing a tremendous shot from 35 yards that left Mugal helpless.

Bennett increased the lead in the second-half, picking up Taylor's pass before turning to shoot powerfully home.

AFC put the result beyond doubt when Claydon pulled the ball back for Norfolk to drive in a shot that Curtin deflected into his own net.

Five minutes from time Owen lashed home a shot from the edge of the area after Betson had touched a free-kick to him.


Hadleigh 0 Stanway 5

THREE sendings off in a bizarre three-minute spell midway through the first half left Hadleigh with nine men and Stanway with ten.

At that stage Stanway were one goal ahead but they dominated the remainder of play.

Synes opened the scoring after four minutes before Cracknell saw the first red card for retaliation. Almost at once Stanway's Ball and Hadleigh's Kevin Godbold were also off following a clash near the touchline.

Clewley increased the lead and he was soon gifted another which was allowed to stand despite heated Hadleigh protests that goalkeeper Lee Godbold had been fouled.

In the second half Driver and Curtis completed the scoring for the visitors.


Mildenhall 4 Woodbridge 0

MILDENHALL opened brightly and took the lead through Pope on seven minutes when he scored direct from a free-kick which went in off a post.

Hope put the home side further ahead 10 minutes into the second half when he side-stepped a defender and fired past Wilson.

On 67 minutes Ogilvie scored from a pass from Dowling and Pope completed his hat-trick on 72 minutes from the penalty spot.
