Butler Goal Sees Needham Through

Butler Goal Sees Needham Through
Ipswich's Reggie Lambe was brought down in the box just 15 minutes into the match at Bloomfield, with Dean Bowditch stepping up to take the penalty. However, the striker's effort was poor to say the least, with Needham keeper Liam Jones comfortably saving. Deano also fired wide from the rebound.

The home side had ex-Ipswich midfielder Kevin Horlock playing in defence, while the Blues featured the likes of Jaime Peters and Matt Richards.

Lambe then conceded the free-kick that led to Needham's goal just three minutes before the end. The initial effort was cleared only as far as defender Butler, who hit a bullet of a shot into the back of the Town net.

Danny Laws' men now progress into the final against Lowestoft Town on 28th April at Portman Road.

If this doesnt show how bad things are at ITFC then nothing will.

It's only the reserves, but I have been slightly concerned that there is no quality amongst our second eleven. Needham aren't a bad local side, but they shouldn't be beating a team with the likes of Bowditch, Peters and Richards! And what happened to that invincible reserve side of last season!?

We integrated them into our first eleven/shipped them off on loans/got in an argument with Jim and got sold.

I think most at PR know the season is over and with the uncertainty of whats happening for next season, most players think...bothered!
