U18s at Leiston in Premier Cup
Tuesday, 6th Feb 2018 12:00
Town’s U18s are in action against Leiston at their Victory Road ground in the quarter-finals of the Omni Freight Suffolk Premier Cup this evening (KO 7.45pm).
Alan Lee’s side - which has been augmented by one or two U23s players in previous rounds - will be looking to bounce back from last Tuesday’s 2-0 FA Youth Cup defeat to Blackpool and then the subsequent 5-1 league hammering by Colchester on Friday.
Bostik League Premier Division Leiston suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Worthing on Saturday and manager Glenn Driver, whose assistant is former Town winger Tony Kinsella, says they’ll have to improve significantly if they’re to beat the Blues this evening.
“If we defend like that it will be a cricket score,” Driver told BBC Radio Suffolk, reflecting on his team’s weekend defending.
Last season the young Blues exited the competition to tonight’s opposition at the same stage, Leiston having run out 6-3 victors on home turf.
Town’s Suffolk Premier Cup run also ended at Leiston in the previous campaign when they were beaten 6-2 at the first round stage, again at Victory Road.

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
