Rain, and a Brazilian trialist
Leiston Town 0 Ipswich Town XI 2 - Victory Road, Pre Season friendly, 27th July 2010
My first trip to see a game at Leiston, but for once I did not do a tour of the ground - heavy rain put a stop to that and by the time the rain had stopped the game had started. A tough game against a non league side that did not seem overawed.
Bad first five minutes for Roy Keane as both Quinn and Civelli picked up injuries and had to be substituted.
Before the rain
Civelli before the injury
Not much to write home about, till the 62 minute when we saw a Brazilian trialist arrive on the pitch - Marcus Picciarelli. The 20-year-old striker is currently with Rio de Janeiro side Macaé and started a trial earlier in the week. wonder what he thought of a wet Lesiton?
