Lowestoft Town lift Suffolk Premier Cup
LOWESTOFT Town lifted the LB Group Suffolk Premier Cup when they defeated holders Bury Town 4-2 at Portman Road tonight.
The Trawlerboys went ahead in the 18th minute when the ball rebounded off unfortunate Bury centre back Sam Nunn and looped into the net.
Bury spurned a great opportunity to equalise two minutes later when Andy Reynolds made a superb block from Bill Clark’s penalty following a handball by Greg Crane.
They did get on terms in the 30th minute, John Sands finding the bottom corner, but Lowestoft were back in front five minutes later through the goal of the game, Joe Francis squaring the ball, Andrew Fisk dummying it and Dale Cockrill firing just inside the post from outside the penalty area.
Two Chris Henderson goals in as many minutes settled the outcome after Lowestoft had the better chances during the second half.

Bury pulled one back in the 90th minute, Lee Smith converting from the spot after Mark Coulson’s cross struck the outstretched arm of Crane.
