Woodbridge win silverware
WOODBRIDGE Town defeated Grundisburgh 4-2 in a six-goal thriller at Notcutts Park last night to lift the Churchman Cup.
This final was left over from last season and saw Ridgeons League Woodbridge win the trophy but Grundisburgh, from the Suffolk and Ipswich League, never looked two leagues lower than their opponents.
Lacking the spice of previous battles, the standard of football more than compensated and all six goals mirrored the quality of the build-up play.
After only two minutes Scopes rifled in from 30 yards to open the scoring for the home side, and on 11 minutes Churchill finished off a four-man, one-touch move.
Grundisburgh stuck to their task but it was not until the hour mark when Dearsley jinked through to fire home after a neat combination with Bradlaugh to pull one back.

Seven minutes later Churchyard, after a long run and measured finish, restored the two-goal cushion, but back came the visitors in the 80th minute when Driver slammed in after being put clear by McDonald.
This set up a stirring ending and Stafford went very close and pulled a shot wide as Woodbridge looked to seal the win which they did in added time when Brimstead powered in a header from Scopes’s free-kick.
