Tractor Girls Win Again to Maintain 100 Per Cent Start
Tuesday, 24th Aug 2021 22:18
Ipswich Town Women maintained their 100 per cent start to their first ever FA Women's National League Southern Premier Division season by beating Gillingham 3-0 at Rochester United Sports Ground this evening.
Paige Peake gave the Blues the lead from the penalty spot in the 28th minute after Sophie Peskett had been fouled.
It took until 11 minutes from time for the Tractor Girls to add to their lead when Abbie Lafayette’s corner was touched in by Natasha Thomas, her third goal of the season.
The third came just a minute later, Peskett bursting through before shooting past the Gills keeper.
Town remain top of the division having taken nine points out of nine from their first three games at tier three level without conceding a goal.
Town: Quantrill, Hughes (Egan 83), Peake, Smith, Hubbard, Lafayette, Horwood (c), Peskett, Robertson (King 83), Grey (Barratt 62), Biggs (Thomas 65). Unused: L Jackson.

Things were different in the 1970s. Glam Rock and Chopper bikes were cool, there were strikes and power cuts and only three channels on the television.
Up and Down, We Follow by Jamiebed
Having supported Ipswich home and away since the late 1970s, I was somewhat surprised that our recent trip to Wycombe scared and scarred more than any previous.
The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
