Lakeside Hammers boss Will Pottinger declared it “job well done” after securing their spot in the next round of the Knockout Cup with a home win over Ipswich.

The Hammers had already seized control of the tie with a convincing away win at Foxhall on Thursday.

But they nonetheless maintained their perfect home record with a hard-fought display which left team boss Pottinger delighted.

“It was always going to be a strange evening starting with such a lead, but it was a good night for us,” he said.

“We got the win to keep our strong home form going, and we are obviously pleased to be into the next round.

“The top three all scored double figures which is another positive, so we’ve got plenty of positives to build on and it was a job well done on the night.”

The Hammers did not have things all their own way but dug deep to secure victory on the night.

Top four Nick Morris, Richard Lawson, Adam Ellis and Kyle Newman again powered them to victory, with useful support from Ben Morley and Zach Wajtknecht.

They will be back in action at home to Edinburgh on Saturday, May 19 (7.45pm).

Hammers: Nick Morris 12, Adam Ellis 11, Richard Lawson 10, Kyle Newman 7+3, Ben Morley 5, Zach Wajtknecht 3+1, Alfie Bowtell 1.

Ipswich: Rory Schlein 12+1, Connor Mountain 12, Edward Kennett 7, Cameron Heeps 6+1, Danyon Hume 4+3, Taylor Hampshire 0, Nico Covatti r/r.
