Sunday, 11th Oct 2020 19:41
Ipswich Town Women hammered Cambridge United 10-0 at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe this afternoon to maintain their place at the top of FAWNL Division One South East with Natasha Thomas hitting a hat-trick
Sophie Peskett bundled the Tractor Girls into the lead in the fifth minute, then she made it 2-0 with her second of the afternoon on 14.
Three minutes later, a visiting defender turned Paige Peake’s corner into her own net, before Thomas made it 4-0 on 21 with her first of the game, then 5-0 with her second in the 28th minute.
Peake netted a penalty on 31, then Anna Grey completed the first-half scoring with Town’s seventh a minute later.
Thomas completed her hat-trick and made it 8-0 in the 58th minute, prior to Zoe Barratt grabbing the ninth in the 77th minute and Amy-Leigh Abrehart making it 10 with 11 minutes left on the clock.
Manager Joe Sheehan, whose side are now the only team in the top four tiers still to concede this season, was delighted with the performance, which he felt was the best of his time as boss.
“Brilliant, I think that’s as good as we’ve probably seen from us, certainly in the year in 10 months that I’ve been in the post,” he said. “Fantastic.”

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
