Needham Market 3-2 Felixstowe & Walton

By

Needham progress thanks to Heath’s double

Heath at the double as Marketmen edge past resilient Seasiders.

Despite Needham racing into a 2-0 lead before the half hour mark, Felixstowe fought back to ensure the scores were level at the break. However, Gareth Heath’s second half goal ensured the hosts progressed into the draw for the Semi-finals of the Suffolk Premier Cup. A trophy which the Reds will be keen to retain having tasted success against Lowestoft Town last season.

Needham boss Richard Wilkins made several changes from the side which beat Tonbridge Angels 4-2 last time out, but equally the visitors were forced into several changes.

Heath opened the scoring early on in this cup tie with a dipping free kick that had Crump beaten, before Daniel Morphew emphatically dispatched a penalty into the roof of the net to double the advantage.

Then came a five minute spell which the hosts would rather forget. Joe Francis capitalised on a defence mix up to pull a goal back, before Danny Gay was chipped by Ruel just minutes later.

Half Time: Needham Market 2-2 Felixstowe & Walton

Brendan Ocran’s cross picked out captain Heath and his deft strike nestled in the bottom corner.

Further second half chances for either side were to prove few and far between as Needham held on.

Full Time: Needham 3-2 Felixstowe & Walton

Needham Market, Leiston, Bury Town and Kirkley & Pakefield make up this seasons semi-finalists.

Thanks to tonight’s victory, The Reds are now four games unbeaten and must maintain this run of good form. They return to league action on Saturday when they travel to Wheatsheaf Park. The home of Staines Town.

Get the team together and play Fantasy League
