AFC Sudbury: Latest news

We had hoped to progress in the Suffolk Premier Cup against Lowestoft Town last Wednesday but it was not to be. It did not help our cause that six players were unavailable for various reasons but those who played certainly did not let the club down and with a bit of luck, which of course you always need in Cup games, we would have won.

We had hoped to progress in the Suffolk Premier Cup against Lowestoft Town last Wednesday but it was not to be. It did not help our cause that six players were unavailable for various reasons but those who played certainly did not let the club down and with a bit of luck, which of course you always need in Cup games, we would have won. Instead, a twice taken penalty at the death gave the Blues the edge.

Our spirits were lifted by Saturday with the news that striker, Danny Bloomfield, had signed for us from Cambridge City for the rest of this season and next. Nick Smith did try to sign him earlier in the season and had to work hard to get him to the club as others were interested.

Danny was in the team against second placed Atherstone Town against whom we again found ourselves 2 - 0 down in the first half and, although Darren Gould have little to do in the game, we could not penetrate their uncompromising defence.

We must do all we can to capitalise on our next two home games against Stourport Swifts on Saturday and Leighton Town on Tuesday the 17th who are 16th and 9th respectively in the League whilst we are currently 11th with a gap of six points now on the 10th spot.

Our Reserves drew 1 - 1 on Saturday with Lee Rayner scoring the equaliser and their next game is away on the 17th March at Halstead.
