RYMAN LEAGUE DIVISION ONE NORTH

Witham Town 2 AFC Sudbury 3

AFC SUDBURY took the lead after ten minutes when Bacon took an easy chance, but Witham equalised within two minutes after a mix-up in the visitors' defence, Hawes being credited with the goal.

Home keeper Madden, making his debut, made two spectacular saves in succession but in the second half Heath turned and shot in at the far post to put the visitors back in front.

Again Witham were soon back level when substitute Rob King scored with a low shot. The winner came in the 80th minute when Rowe rounded the home keeper and shot into an empty net.

Redbridge 1 Maldon Town 3

GLEN Revell was added to Maldon's growing injury list and they went behind when the ball flew off Frankie Everitt into his own net. Everitt made amends at the other end four minutes later direct from a free kick.

After 70 minutes Ross Parmentor's free kick was headed home by Steve Wareham and Wareham's second on 83 minutes clinched the win.

Bury Town 1 Waltham Abbey 0

ONLY a brilliant save by visiting keeper Marcim Cichowlas denied Liam Barratt. Another great save by the keeper prevented Michael Steward from opening the scoring. Liam Barratt then lobbed the keeper but his follow-up header went wide of an open goal.

Bury continued to dominate but were unable to penetrate the visiting defence. On 43 minutes they were awarded a penalty for a handball offence but the keeper saved Gavin Johnson's shot.

A quiet opening to the second half saw Bury still having most of the play but unable to find the finishing touch as Waltham Abbey were content to soak up the pressure and play on the break.

Bury finally took the lead on 64 minutes when Liam Barratt headed home from an Ashley Sloots shot.

Waltham Abbey then showed more attacking ambition and it was the Bury defence that came under some pressure from a succession of free kicks and corners. Few chances were created at either end and there was no addition to the score.

EAST ANGLIAN CUP QUARTER-FINAL

Leiston 2 Needham Market 0

LEISTON progressed to the semi-finals of the East Anglian Cup with a comfortable 2-0 win over a much-changed Needham Market.

The home side took a tenth-minute lead when Cunningham whipped in a left wing free kick that Bailey could only divert into his own net.

Needham, who won the competition last season, were very quick on the break but the home side dealt well with the threat.

Foster in the Needham goal denied George with a great save before half-time.

The home side took a stranglehold on the game on 69 minutes when Trotter released Boyland whose clever pass inside the full-back set up Crane who flashed home a fine left-foot strike.

Further chances came and went for the home side with the visitors running out of steam.

CHURCHMAN CUP THIRD ROUND

Woodbridge Town 2 Walsham-le-Willows 2 (Woodbridge won 4-2 on pens)

DEBUT-MAKING substitute Danny Tatum scored the winning penalty as Woodbridge went through to the semi-finals of the Churchmans Cup 4-2 in a shoot-out last night.

Jon Bickers put Woodbridge ahead after 15 minutes and Mark Roper made it 2-0 five minutes later from the penalty spot.

Walsham hit back in the second period thanks to a Will Brown double, the equaliser coming in the third minute of injury time to send the contest straight to a penalty shoot-out when Tatum's goal proved decisive.

EAST ANGLIAN COUNTIES WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP

Norfolk 2 Suffolk 0

SUFFOLK'S run of three successive wins was ended by Norfolk who deserved their 2-0 success in an East Anglian Women's Championship match at Fakenham last night.

The only goal of the first half came after 25 minutes when Gemma Farman (Norwich City), converted a penalty kick following a tackle from behind.

A great point-blank save by goalkeeper Faye Lunn (Ipswich Town), prevented a second goal in the 39th minute as Norfolk created most of the chances. A low shot by Emily Coates (Hethersett), increased the lead while Amy Warnes (Ipswich Town), was just wide after 79 minutes with Suffolk's best effort of the game.
