IPSWICH Men's 2s have finally collected their first three points of the season in the NE14HOCKEY Premier League, and did so in fine form.

With a bench that consisted of 2 ex 1st team players, Andy Swindin and James Walker, and Shyam Patel keeping his place in the side after a good performance the previous week the 2s have certainly got a good squad this year.

It took Ipswich 10 minutes to get going and in this period were 1-0 down from a short corner, and Burch making some impressive saves to keep the score at 1-0 down. Then captain Reed started to boss the midfield, with James Smith and Matt Walker always close by to lend a hand in the middle, leaving Miller to perform his flair in the oppositions half.

Dixon unleashed a drag flick at the helpless Mark Lloyd in the havering goal, shortly after a previous effort smashed the post. Cook, Martin and J Walker added there names to the score sheet but the pick of the bunch came from Palmer and Miller. Palmer scoring the last with a strike that almost snapped the back board from a short corner and Miller linking well with forward Cook to place a low drive from the top of the circle into the corner of the goal.

One problem for Reed to address is the tackling with both J Smith (Keano) and Dixon both getting yellow cards.
