Harleston 4 Ipswich II 1

Ipswich were well in control in this game thanks to Harry Martin winning a short corner and a superb drag flick from the ever impressive Keir Dixon.

Some controversial umpiring frustrated Ipswich and then things turned worse with goalkeeper Tony Burch being knock unconscious and getting checked over at A&E.

One up at half time, Ipswich were forced to put defender James Walker in goal, however he coped very well making three amazing saves in an impressive debut.

Unfortunately Ipswich were under a lot of pressure and matters were not helped when Harleston were awarded a goal that was hit from the long corner position.

Matters were not helped when Ipswich went down to nine men when Dixon was sent off for dissent and then, within 20 seconds of that, Reed was sent off for foul play.

The nine men certainly did the Ipswich shirt proud protecting James Walker, but Harleston scored two more from short corners.

Discipline will have to be addressed as Ipswich have now had seven yellows in the last four games as Matt Walker was sent off late in the day for foul play.

Ipswich welcome back James Smith who was sorely missed with his hard tackling from suspension, but in turn will lose a key player in Keir Dixon.
