Upminster IV 2 Ipswich East Suffolk IV 3

A late start at Uppingham caused some selection problems for IES, which were made worse by the loss of Crane to hospital in the opening minutes of the game.

Fortunately, Cornish had converted a sharp chance before the departure of the veteran midfielder and he added a second after the reformation of the IES centre.

Uppingham pressed hard and were rewarded on the stroke of half time from a short corner completed after the sounding of the whistle.

The second half saw Whelpton and Cornish combining well up front with Wixden more than ably filling Crane's shoes in centre midfield. It fell to Whiting to take the game beyond the opposition with a calmly taken short corner strike, finding the corner under pressure with considerable flair.
