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.

I say this with the greatest of respect to the new regime at Ipswich Town, but brace yourselves - this voyage could get a little bumpy.
A New Team by bbg
It was very obvious long before the end of last season we would be starting the season tomorrow with new management. However, as it gets closer to the transfer deadline next week, it is now looking possible that we could surprisingly also be seeing a team almost entirely changed from the previous year.
