The new Leiston management team of Stuart Boardley and David Head presided over the perfect start following their appointment on Thursday, a smooth transition following the departure of former boss Glen Driver and assistant Tony Kinsella.
Leiston progressed to the Second Qualifying Round of the FA Trophy for the fifth year on the trot as they dispatched a decent VCD Athletic outfit 3-1 under caretaker boss Ian Cornforth and director of football Trevor Elmy.
Leiston survived a scare but battled back from two goals down at Cheshunt to secure an FA Cup First Qualifying Round replay and put themselves into the hat for the next round as they bagged two strikes in the last 25 minutes.
After an excellent result against Harrow Borough on Tuesday evening at Victory Road, Leiston will be looking to boost their play-off hopes with a win against second from bottom Burgess Hill Town at home tomorrow afternoon, writes Craig Cooper.
Manager Glenn Driver admitted he had to read the riot act to his Leiston side during the half-time interval of their 2-1 victory over Ipswich Town in the Omni Freight Services Suffolk Premier Cup, writes Nick Garnham.
The Trawlerboys deservedly upset their Suffolk neighbours at Victory Road, beating Leiston by the only goal of the game and climbing four places to 14th in the Bostik Premier table as a result, writes John Campany.
There was a dramatic finish in this Suffolk derby with three late goals in a feisty affair that saw referee George Laflin produce eight yellow cards and dismiss Leiston boss Glen Driver from the dug-out.
