Reserves Edge Friendly Win Over Haverhill

Striker Caolan Lavery was the star as a young Ipswich Town reserves XI beat Eastern Counties League Premier Division side Haverhill Rovers 2-1 at the New Croft.

Left-sided player Shane O'Connor and striker Ronan Murray were the most experienced players in the reserves side, with Russell Osman in charge. Also included were USA U20 goalkeeper Cody Cropper and promising young defender Joe Whight.

It was Northern Ireland U21 international Lavery who stole the show however, the Canadian-born frontman opening the scoring midway through the first half after being set up by Whight. The 18-year-old then grabbed his second a few minutes later following good work by Murray.

Haverhill soon hit back as Joe Harvey struck beyond Cropper to give the non-league side hope before the half-time interval. In a second half heavily disrupted by substitutions however, the Blues were able to hold on for the 2-1 win.

Town's first team will be back in action tomorrow evening in the second game of their pre-season tour of Holland against Den Bosch. Paul Jewell's side will be hoping to follow on from their opening 2-0 victory against FC Eindhoven on Tuesday, where new striker Michael Chopra netted both goals.
