Bury Town 4 Lowestoft Town 0
Lowestoft Town's poor run of form continued last night when they were well beaten by holders Bury Town at Ram Meadow in the first round of the Suffolk Premier Cup.
Inspired Bury raced into a two-goal lead inside the first 20 minutes, courtesy of a wonderful long-range strike by John Kennedy and an emphatic header from David Bridges.
Joe Whight's opportunist free-kick made it 3-0 in the 39th minute and even the dismissal of striker Shane Tolley just two minutes later for a late challenge on Jack Ainslie failed to turn the tide in Lowestoft's favour.
The visitors were unable to break down 10-man Bury's resolute defence and Jordan Patrick thumped home a fourth in the 83rd minute to complete the rout.
Not surprisingly, it was one-way traffic in the second period with Bury content to soak up the pressure.

Even when Ainsley managed to round keeper Garnham on 62 minutes, he could not slot home into an unguarded net, his shot cannoning back off the post.
Lowestoft had been forced into a reshuffle after just nine minutes when centre-half Curtis Haynes-Brown hobbled off injured.
