Ipswich East Suffolk III 2 Norfolk Nomads II 1

IES' third string started with a strong squad of 14 and should have given Norfolk Nomads a lot of trouble.

Indeed, for the first ten minutes or so the Nomads didn't really get out of their own half.

However, history has a habit of repeating itself and, just like the last time the teams met, Nomads took the lead against the run of play.

A long ball shot right through the IES midfield and defence from the 25 yard line was expertly picked up and slotted home to put the Nomads ahead.

IES responded and picked up the pace and after a goal scoring chance was stopped on the line Dave Charles slotted home the penalty flick.

After half time IES continued to pressurise the Nomads and seemed to have scored from the stick of Steve Farrow.

However, the ball was deemed to have been struck from outside the D and the goal was disallowed.

It wasn't long before IES took the lead however, as a ball pushed across the Nomad's D by Stu List was beautifully controlled by Dave Charles who powerfully struck home for his second.

Charles had several further chances during the game but failed to capitalise on these opportunities.

Thus the game ended 2-1 in IES' favour but without doubt the scoreline could have been a lot worse for Nomads but for the expertise of their goalkeeper.
