Ipswich Town Reserves 3 Norwich City Reserves 0
The man who loves scoring against Norwich did it again with two goals for Danny Haynes as Ipswich Reserves came out on top of yesterday afternoon's Pontin's Holidays Combination derby at Playford Road.
Darryl Knights added the third in the romp as Town stay top of the East Division.
Haynes, who scored at Carrow Road in last season's 2-1 victory for Town, has also netted at youth and U18 level to make it a clean sweep.
Ipswich's Czech keeper, Jaroslav Drobny, made a couple of good saves, but was largely untroubled as James Krause and Michael Synott, not exactly the biggest defenders in the world, contained Peter Thorne and Ryan Jarvis.
Owen Garvan showed a few glimpses of his old self as he came back from a lengthy illness, but still looks some way off a first team return for Town.

Gavin Williams didn't play but is making steady progress from his groin operation, while Lewis price was also watching the game and said he was feeling less pain now after cracking a rib.
Jaime Peters and Sito Castro were busy down the right flank supplying the Haynes and Knights.
Haynes kept his remarkable record of scoring in all bit one of his games against Norwich when he won a penalty in the ninth minutes and converted with ease.
Sammy Moore had delivered a good ball wide for Knights to pull across and Michael Spillane tripped Haynes.
Haynes bagged his brace ten minutes after the break when Matthew Halliday made a hash of a Darren Currie cross and the young striker pounced to bury from ten yards.
Knights wrapped things up ten minutes from time after good work from substitutes Jai Reason and Jordan Rhodes at a quick free kick and the young striker made it seven goals in four competitive reserve games with a sharp turn and finish.
City offered little in front of new first team boss Peter Grant, with Bally Smart clipping the bar in the dying minutes as they staged a late rally.
The senior teams meet ast Portman Road in 12 days' time and Ipswich will be looking for a similar level of performance and result.
