Sudbury’s recent strong run brought to an end

AFC Sudbury saw their recent strong form in London One North brought to an end after suffering a narrow 3-2 defeat at home to Aveley.

James Baker And Leon Antoine had put the hosts ahead after Jordan Cox opened the scoring, but a second from Cox to level was followed by a 67th minute Junior Dadson strike to condemn the Yellows to defeat.

Elsewhere it was much the same story for Sudbury Rugby Club who returned to London Three North East league action in disappointing fashion after suffering a narrow 17-16 defeat at home to Upminster, a third consecutive loss.

Meanwhile, Ipswich Town were dumped out of the FA, despite a spirited display away at Aston Villa, following a narrow 2-1 defeat.

Michael Chopra had given Mick McCarthy’s charges the lead before Tractor old boy Darren Bent and Andreas Weimann struck to see the Premier League strugglers safely through to the fourth round.
