Sudbury finished their 2013 campaign with a convincing 64-15 win over Hadleigh in the quarter-finals of the Suffolk Cup.

Greene King IPA Eastern Counties League Division Two high-flyers Hadleigh started well with a try after three minutes from Jackson, but Sudbury — who play two leagues higher in London Three North East — applied the pressure and Austin Beckett put them on the scoreboard.

Ed Smart was next to score when Mark Bolton intercepted a poor clearance kick and distributed the ball from the centre of the park out to the right and he ran round behind the posts.

Hadleigh kicked a penalty to end the first half 12-8 down, but the second period was all Sudbury with Fraser Beckett scoring from the restart after Smart had made ground for him.

Fraser Beckett got a second when Mark Bolton kicked ahead and Hadleigh fluffed the pick-up, allowing him to pounce on the loose ball and score.

Will Levett touched down from close range before Smart crossed the line for his second.

Hadleigh scored a second try when Sudbury were again guilty of slack tackling midway through the half.

However, Paul Mather bundled over in the corner and Tom Summers dodged three tackles to score under the posts.

Summers restarted the game with a penalty kick from the centre spot and, although the kick fell short, it moved play deep into the opposition half and Levett scored his second.

Sudbury finished in style with a try in the closing seconds, converted by Summers for another emphatic win to end the year.
