The Marketmen ended their 2016/2017 campaign with silverware, after defeating Lowestoft Town 3-2 in the final of the Suffolk Premier Cup on Monday evening.
First half goals from Luke Ingram and Jack Simmons, before John Sands second half strike ensured victory for Mark Morsley in his last game as the clubs Manager.
Needham started brightly and soon got the breakthrough with four minutes played. Luke Ingram poked home from close range after Jack Simmons ball into the area. His 20th goal of an impressive season.
However, the lead was to prove rather short-lived as Frazer Blake-Traceys volley drew the Trawlerboys level three minutes later.
After a frantic start at the Weston Homes Community Stadium (The home of Colchester United) both goalkeepers were then drawn into action. The arm of Danny Gay denied Joel Glover from distance, before Jake Jessup kept out John Sands in an entertaining game.
Minutes before half time, Needham regained the lead through winger Simmons. A rasping left foot strike from 25 yards.

Simmons continued to prove a real thorn in the Lowestoft side and on 49 minutes his deep cross left Sands with a simple finish from inside the six yard box.
With an hour on the clock, Shaun Bammant tested Gay as Lowestoft looked to the narrow the deficit.
A tense finale was in store when Blake-Tracey grabbed his second of the evening.
Despite this, Needhams defence remained well-organised and they were crowned champions in front of a large Needham contingent.
