Sunday, 23rd Feb 2020 17:45
Amy-Leigh Abrehart hit a hat-trick as Ipswich Town Women thrashed Stevenage 7-0 at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe to increase their lead at the top of FAWNL Division One South East to four points. Eloise King scored twice and Lindsey Cooper and Molly Sutherland once each.
It took only 11 minutes for King to put the Blues in front, then six minutes later Abrehart slammed in a rebound off the underside of the bar to make it 2-0 at half-time.
Midfielder Abrehart netted her second and Town’s third on the hour mark, then Cooper made it 4-0 two minutes later.
Sub Sutherland added the fifth on 71 with her first senior goal, before King made it 6-0 with her second of the game in the 84th minute.
King was denied her hat-trick when she hit the bar in the final minute, but in injury time Abrehart headed her third of the game from close range to complete the scoring.
With second-placed AFC Wimbledon not in action this weekend, the Tractor Girls are now four points clear at the top of the table.
Town: Runnacles, Pannifer, Hubbard, Egan, Crump (c), Biggs (Thomas 67), King, Cooper, Wakefield (Sutherland 59), Abrehart, Peskett (Barratt 72). Unused: Dunn, Rossiter.

Reigning Champions Outfought By Town by clivebleedingthomas

Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.
Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top by clivebleedingthomas
The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
