ITFC Women Hammer Royston in Cup
Sunday, 13th Oct 2019 19:01

Ipswich Town Women progressed to the third round qualifying stage of the Women’s FA Cup after thrashing Royston Town 7-0 at Playford Road on Sunday afternoon.

Maddie Biggs opened the scoring in the 23rd minute with Eloise King doubling the lead a minute later.

King came close to her second when she hit the woodwork but the scoreline remained 2-0 at the break.

Biggs made it 3-0 with her second of the afternoon on the hour, then 10 minutes later skipper Amanda Crump made it four.

The fifth, a header from Lindsey Cooper, came four minutes later, and King claimed Town’s sixth and her second on 84 when she rebounded after Abbie Abrehart’s freekick had been saved.

A minute later, Crump, who was making her 200th appearance for the club, completed an emphatic victory for the Tractor Girls, who have now won their last eight in all competitions.

ITFC Women: Runnacles, Hubbard, Wilson, Crump (c), Biggs, King, Cooper, Lafayette, Abrehart, Grey, Peake. Subs: Stretch, Thomas, Cossey, Dunn, Welton.

I have to confess having become a convert and a regular to the ladies game the Felixstowe venue works really well, I have convinced and converted the good lady to join me for a stroll at the seaside either before or after the match with refreshment thrown in. The welcoming and club house facilities at Felixstowe is very good so it was a difficult sell to try and engineer an afternoon out at Playford Road, so I am afraid I disappointingly missed this one. But well done girls.

Anyone know why venue was switched and what was the crowd like?
