LOWESTOFT bowed out of the Ridgeons League Cup at the first round stage as they suffered only their second loss of the season - both in cup competitions.

Leiston gained revenge for an earlier in the season league defeat to Lowestoft in this north Suffolk derby. After a very slow start, things began to warm up with Leiston hitting in long range efforts from full back Wardley and Mark Lowe, which did not trouble debutant Town keeper, David Attridge.

A piece of Russell Stock magic saw him weave in the box but he was thwarted by Goldfinch as he was about to shoot on 23 minutes.

Stock then went on another run, fed Woodrow who placed the ball towards McGee, who hit a great effort that went inches over the bar.

On 27 minutes Leiston took the lead when winger Cunningham floated over a left wing cross which eluded the Town defence and Mcglone was all alone, and he headed carefully into the corner of the net, whilst Attridge had to be alert to deny a Saker with his legs on 33 minutes.

Leiston began to build up second half attacks through Bramble, whilst Town relied on set piece moves and from an Anselin free kick, Stannard clutched the ball off the head of Stock.

From another set piece move, this time by Leiston from a free kick just inside the Town half taken by Boardley, it was met by an intricate header from Leiston defender Marc Lowe on 72 minutes.

Leiston could have made it 3-0 only for keeper Attridge to make a flying save to deny Cunningham.
