Ipswich Sunday Football League round-up
Ipswich Sunday Football League latest with Richard Jones
It appears the rain that desolated the ISFL fixtures for weeks is now a thing of the past and has been replaced with a lovely sunny spring. A few sliding tackles and one big grass burn later and I’m already missing the wet stuff. I’m so fickle.
The most important thing though is that matches are being played and some thoroughly entertaining ones at that.
Leaders of the Premier, Kitchener Taverners were not in league action this weekend as they fought their way into the final of the Suffolk Sunday Cup. Congratulations and good luck to them in the final.
In their absence, Belstead Arms closed the gap to three points with a 5-2 win over Chantry Blues.

Bottom side Taverners were involved in an entertaining but ultimately unrewarding 6-3 goal-fest with Boxford Rovers. Rovers’ Luke Waugh hit five.
Meanwhile Trimley Red Devils and Bourne Vale Rangers shared out eight goals and two red cards during a game in which Trimley ran out 6-2 winners, while in RM1, a David Shore strike earned a point for FC Monarchs against Westbourne Warriors, but they remain bottom.
Sizewell SS stunned MB2 leaders AFC Bergholt 2-1 despite being reduced to 10 men. That result gave Queens and Legion Warriors the chance to close the gap but, facing each other, they could only play out a 0-0 draw.
Elsewhere, in a battle of the basement boys, Westbourne Warriors Reserves saw off D&M TSSC 3-1.
Playford are back on top of RM2 after a 6-1 win over Holbrook Swan Reserves with Richard Jones hitting two for the away side. He sounds like a really good player!
