Sunday, 19th Jan 2020 21:35
Ipswich Town Women hammered Brantham Athletic 14-0 at Brantham Leisure Centre on Sunday afternoon as the Tractor Girls continued their sixth successive defence of the Suffolk FA Women's Cup.
Natasha Thomas (pictured) scored four, Zoe Cossey and Ellie Rossiter two each and Lindsey Cooper, skipper Amanda Crump, Chloe Dunn, Nicole Pannifer, assistant manager Paige Shorten and Roxy Small grabbed one each.
“This afternoon was a positive and assured display,” Shorten said. “It was good for some squad players to gain vital minutes and positive that others came through unscathed.
"It puts us in good stead ahead of [next week’s FA Cup fourth round tie at] Huddersfield.”
Town: Clarke, Dunn, Cooper, Stretch, Pannifer, Shorten, Crump (c), Rossiter, Cossey, Small, Thomas.

As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.

For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
