IT CERTAINLY was not a case of unlucky 13 for Capel Plough in the first round of this season’s Days Sports Suffolk Senior Reserve Cup.
The village side won 13-0 away to Leiston St Margarets in Saturday’s tie on an afternoon when 41 goals were scored in just five ties in the competition.

The other two ties resulted in a 4-0 away win for Walsham-le-Willows at Benhall St Mary, while Westerfield United went through 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw with visitors Beccles Town.
Five more first-round ties are scheduled for this coming Saturday.
