Disappointed Ipswich Town players leave the pitch last night after defeat to Lowestoft Town in their Suffolk Premier Cup semi-final

IPSWICH Town bowed out of the John Banks Suffolk Premier Cup last night, after Michael Frew’s 81st minute goal was enough to give Lowestoft Town a 1-0 semi-final victory.

In a game of few chances, Lowestoft always looked the more likely side to break the deadlock and Frew’s dipping volley beyond Michael Crowe proved to be the only goal of the game.

A youthful Town side never registered a shot on goal in the entire 90 minutes, and so it was the holders who go through to Portman Road, where they will face either Bury Town or Leiston in this season’s final.

A crowd of 406 saw Lowestoft enjoy the better of the exchanges at Kirkley & Pakefield’s Walmer Road ground, with Joe Francis and Josh Dawkin both going close in the opening ten minutes in a low-key opening period.

Ipswich looked more threatening after the break, but were unable to break down the Ryman League Premier Division side’s strong defence.

Former Ipswich Town player Scott Mitchell had a header saved following a corner and Dawkin’s well-struck shot was just wide of the target.

Crowe saved a powerful drive from Robert Eagle just before Frew latched on to a ball over the top of the Town defence and hit a dipping volley into the far corner of the net.
