Sunday, 10th Nov 2019 18:05
Ipswich Town Women cruised into the second round of the Women’s FA Cup after defeating AFC Basildon 5-0 at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe this afternoon.
The Tractor Girls went ahead via Paige Peake’s freekick in the 16th minute then, having had a number of earlier chances to add to their lead, made it 2-0 on 33 through Sophie Peskett’s solo effort.
Natasha Thomas made it 3-0 in the final minute of the half after good work from Peskett.
Town had to wait until the 83rd minute for their fourth when Abbie Lafayette turned Peake’s corner home at the far post, then Zoe Cossey completed the scoring with two minutes remaining.
The Tractor Girls are in action again when they take on AFC Kesgrave away in the County Cup next Sunday (KO 2.30pm).
Town: Runnacles, Hubbard, Wilson, Thomas, Crump (c), Cooper, Lafayette, Grey (Rossiter 77), Peake, Peskett (Cossey 68), Sutherland (Dunn 59). Unused: Jackson, Pannifer Biggs. Att: 175.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom

The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
