Ipswich East Suffolk journeyed home a happy team after beating an in-form Norwich Union side on Saturday.

The match began with IES pushing forward from the start, with the midfield stringing together a good series of passes and linking up well with the forward line.

Kerry Kemp made a welcomed return to the side and made a great contribution on the left hand side of defence.

The first goal came after a brief goalmouth scramble, with Annette White finally finding the back of the net.
