Bury Town 0 Needham Market 0 (Bury win 5-4 on penalties)
Bury Town won a penalty shoot-out 5-4 to win tonight’s Suffolk Premier Cup semi-final tie against holders Needham Market, following a 0-0 draw at AFC Sudbury in front of a crowd of 250.
Both sides converted their first four penalties, before Jack Simmons struck the post with his spot kick, allowing Ryan Jolland to dispatch the tie-clinching penalty.
Bostik North side Bury had their chances in the first half, especially early on when striker Ollie Hughes was twice denied by keeper Danny Gay. Cemal Ramadan struck the foot of a post with a deflected shot on 28 minutes.
The Marketmen, of the Bostik Premier, also peppered the target with ex-Bury striker John Sands firing into the side-netting, and Brendan Ocran slicing a good chance wide just before half-time.
Neither side could engineer a breakthrough in the second half either, Ocran having a shot cleared off the line, while at the other end Tevan Allen’s effort hit the bar in stoppage time for Bury.
