Pre-Season Friendlies

Seasiders 2 Leiston 3

Saturday 15th July 2017

Att  270

In an altogether more competitive game than the previous week, the match ended with a narrow win for the visitors who will be playing in the Bostik (Isthmian) League Premier Division this season.

Having grabbed a two goal first half lead through Nick Ingram & Craig Jennings, the Seasiders were pegged back before the break when Docherty pulled a goal back and in a second half dominated by the visitors Pelling & Marsden found the net to give Leiston what was in reality, a fairly comfortable win!

Both sides were missing players although Leiston’s Chris Henderson gave a masterclass in midfield play with the Seasiders most affected with Dan Davis, Joe Francis, Jordy Matthews, Josh Kerridge & Scott Chaplin all absent.

For those on parade it was a good run out in front of a decent crowd and now it’s on to next week when Essex Senior League Ilford FC are the visitors for a double header.

Saturday 8th July 2017


The first warm up game gave both sides a good run out as it followed on from the official opening of the new clubhouse.

The opening had preceded the match both chronologically & in importance on the day and the game proved to be not too much more than a good 90 minutes’ exercise for both teams. The game ended goal-less although both sides had a few opportunities over the 90 minutes but did offer the excellent crowd turn out a few glimpses of what to expect over the season. An excellent afternoon, a not too competitive match and an opportunity to see what will hopefully be the future of Ipswich Town over the coming years while also familiarising  ourselves Kevin & Watty’s 2017/18 squad.
