Ipswich Town lost on penalties to Bury Town in their second pre-season friendly tonight - here are the best pictures from the game.

The two sides were playing for the Martin Swallow Challenge Trophy, honouring long-time Ipswich fan and Bury volunteer Martin, who is currently battling a brain tumour.  

And, having taken the lead through Cameron Humphreys in the first half, Town were scuppered by their former captain Carlos Edwards in the second.

First the 42-year-old came off the bench to score the equaliser, before netting the winning effort as Bury lifted the trophy 5-3 in a hastily-arranged penalty shoot-out.

It was the second game with fans back for Town, following a season of coronavirus restrictions, and a crowd of 675 watched on at Ram Meadow.
