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.

An entertaining game with a great first goal from a free kick. Basildon rarely threatened. Looking forward to the draw for the Second Round.

Congrats, onwards and upwards.

If anyone could put a team photo up with the names underneath. Help to familiarise the fans with the players

Back row L-R: Natasha Thomas, Paige Peake, Nikita Runnacles (gk), Molly Sutherland, Lindsey Cooper.
Front row L-R: Blue Wilson, Sophie Peskett, Anna Grey, Abbie Lafayette, Eva Hubbard, Amanda Crump (C).

We've drawn Chichester (away) in the next round. They're a league above us but they're bottom of their league, we're top of our league. Should be winnable hopefully. COYB
