It took 30 minutes for either side to create a meaningful chance, with Town looking the slightly stronger side. Finally, five minutes later after strong claims of a Southwold penalty, Ipswich broke the dead-lock. Thanks to a lovely through ball by Albert Wilton who played the ball to Declan Daniels who perfectly side-footed the ball into the bottom left hand corner of the goal, giving Town a deserved, yet controversial lead.
Ipswich weren’t finished just yet, on the stroke of half-time, a precise lofted corner was met by a thumping header from Luca Vega, doubling Town’s lead.
The second half was introduced by a completely different Town side, with the added bonus of a rather peculiar under 18, Kieron Dyer.
Dyer relished the opportunity, having many touches of the ball. Despite this, he still struggled to get on the score sheet, having an excellent opportunity in doing so. One on one with the keeper, yet Dyer still managed to place his shot slightly wide of the post.
Dyer showed his class, when needed giving fellow team mates a helping hand when necessary. The second half made no difference in the score line, leaving Southwold disappointed once again. The effort by the seaside team was evidently shown. Many talented Town players seen tonight, perhaps the future of this football club isn’t all gloom and doom.
