Stowmarket 85

Another successful away trip for high flying Stowmarket as they continued their fine start to the season with another well-deserved victory.

Despite again being outsized and outweighed upfront this game was again proof that organisation, fitness and a good team ethic can easily counter this disadvantage.

From the start the Stowmarket forwards showed that they were going to be more than capable of providing the dangerous backs with a very good supply of quality ball.

This was also combined with L&Y kicking any ball they won back to Stowmarket, and it was only a matter of time till a crisp handling move saw centre Scott Milton complete a move started on the half-way line.

There followed a steady stream of further tries from Joe Fifield and Milton again. A further sweeping move saw blind side winger Nick Faliveno come all the way to the other side of the park to steal a try from 1st XV debutant Diogo Pina.

From the subsequent kick off the Stowmarket prop Ben Honeyball was hit in the air and forced to leave the field resulting in L&Y number 8 getting 10 minutes in the bin.

Further attacking play saw fly-half Tom Crowe touch down. This concluded the tries from the first half and with fullback Dan Garrard kicking several, Stowmarket led 31-0 at the break.

The second half continued in much the same fashion, but saw L&Y tiring badly and gaps appearing on a regular basis, allowing powerful centre Milton to add two further tries and partner Max Crowe three of his own.

This was interspersed with additional tries from fullback Garrard, hooker Jake Squirrell, winger Faliveno again, and back row replacement Alex (Bob) Lancaster.

It was very good the see that despite several changes from the previous week Stowmarket could continue to play the same wide game that has been their hallmark this season.

This season has shown more depth to the Stowmarket squad than we have enjoyed for several seasons, and yet again there are several unavailable, giving further opportunities for the squad to be revolved again.

Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Second Round

Ipswich Athletic 0

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side 14

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side progressed to the next round of the Suffolk FA Cup with a massive 14-0 thumping of Suffolk league side Ipswich Athletic, writes Liam Young.

Focus on the strengths, recognise the weaknesses and enjoy the ride.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.

Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
