THERE were goals galore in the second round of this season’s Suffolk Primary Cup at the weekend.
AFC Sudbury A set the ball rolling on Friday evening, winning 8-1 at home to Elmswell, and the goals continued to flow on Saturday afternoon.
A staggering total of 161 goals were scored across 30 ties at an average of 5.36 goals per game!

Carlton Colville Town won 8-0 at home to Hawthorn United and there were 7-1 wins for Sporting 87 Reserves and Ufford Reserves versus Suffolk Punch Haverhill and Sutton Heath Saxons respectively.
Only seven sides failed to find the net, with East Bergholt A losing 1-0 at Redgrave Rangers in the lowest-scoring tie of the round.
Action is pictured above from the match between Coplestonians A (maroon shirts) and AFC Kesgrave Reserves (blue & red stripes) which the visitors won 3-0.
There were nine goals in the sole Days Sports Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup, with Framlingham Town winning 8-1 at home to lower-league Capel Plough Reserves.
The goalscoring didn’t stop there as there were a further 63 goals in 12 ties in the Suffolk Veterans’ Cup on Sunday.
Nine of those were scored by Whitton United as they walloped Stowupland Facons 9-2, while Bury Town beat Black Boy 7-2 and Old Times were 6-0 victors over Ipswich Phoenix.
