Ipswich East Suffolk IV did not have the stamina to hold onto a two-goal lead at Havering IV on Saturday.

The depleted IES team saw Reed come out of retirement for a spot in centre midfield, while ice hockey player Millichip made his debut in goal.

IES started the game well, right-back Black assisting in both of the opening moves that Whepton finished within the first ten minutes.

Havering's young side were then reduced to ten after a yellow card, but reacted to the set back by pulling one back and then slotting in a second before half time to bring the scores level.

A fine save from Millichip in the second half saw the rebound kicked off the line. The resulting flick was almost saved by Millichip as Havering took the lead.

Whittaker and Whelpton strove valiantly to restore the balance, but IES seemed to tire and Havering found a fourth to take the game beyond reach, the same Havering player scoring all four of his sides goals.
