Lowestoft Town added the LB Group Suffolk Premier Cup to their Ridgeons League title in thrilling fashion at Portman Road last night.
Captain Darren Cockrill scored an injury-time penalty to give the Blues a 3-2 victory over Needham Market.
Lowestoft dominated the opening half hour and led 2-0 thanks to two goals from Jamie Godbold, who twice took advantage of poor Needham defending.

Needham got a foothold in the game towards the end of the opening period and got on top in the second half. Danny Phillips pulled a goal back and two minutes later Tommy Smith headed the equaliser.
Needham looked the more likely winners at that stage and had a good shout for a penalty turned down before Lowestoft went up the other end and won a penalty themselves which Cockrill slotted home.
