Corton 3, Ipswich Wanderers 1

CORTON produced a scintillating performance to advance into the second round of the Suffolk Senior Cup at the expense of Ridgeons Division One side Ipswich Wanderers.

Their opponents started the game well and looked to use their experience at a higher level to their advantage.

However, Corton were not deterred and matched their opponents and began to dominate proceedings.

Corton were kicking into a strong wind in the first half but this did not seem to effect their attacking options.

They created several chances which saw Coote and Wilkinson miss good opportunities.

However, just when it looked like it was going to remain goalless at half-time Coote hit a rasping volley from 20 yards into the top corner leaving the Wanderers keeper helpless.

Corton quickly added a second in first half injury time when Wilkinson calmly converted from the spot following a foul in the area.

Wanderers looked to get straight back into the game in the second period and came out firing on all cylinders.

They made changes to their line up in a bid to do this. This proved to work as they pulled a goal back 10 minutes into the second period when Wake headed home from close range after a right wing cross.

Wanderers continued to press but found the Corton backline in excellent form.

Smith and Chong stood firm against their opponents while the Bloomfield brothers at full backs nullified any attacks while advancing at every opportunity to support the Corton attack.

Corton completed the scoring in the final 10 minutes when Ryan Bloomfield hit a free-kick 50 yards to Rory French.

He beat his opponent but then looked to have lost possession but the Wanderers defenders' attempted clearance was played into French and rebounded to Dawes who slotted home from close range.

Corton celebrated while a Wanderers' defender was sent off for dissent after the goal was scored.

Corton celebrated their achievement as the final whistle went and now face another home tie in round two against Ransome Sports on November 22.

Ole Frank PH MoM: The whole squad.

There is no game tomorrow as it has be rearranged to Tuesday evening, when Corton will face local rivals Bungay at Maltings Meadow with a 7.30pm kick off.
