Lowestoft Town secured progress in the Suffolk Premier Cup in dramatic fashion at the Amber Dew Events Stadium last night.

The Blues netted a late equaliser to draw 1-1 with Needham Market before going through 4-3 on penalties.

The visitors took the lead after just two minutes when the ball was given away in midfield and Joe Marsden produced a cool finish.

The hosts pressed for an equaliser without success until the second minute of injury-time when Matt Brown netted from a corner.

The hosts then sealed the win on penalties, with Connor Deeks scoring the decisive spot-kick.

Kirkley & Pakefield also went through, beating Whitton United 1-0 thanks to a first half goal from Kyle Haylock.
