Joe Sheehan and Natasha Thomas shared their thoughts following Ipswich Town Women's 7-1 victory over Plymouth Argle on Sunday afternoon.

Manager Sheehan said: "We are pleased we won, picking up six points from the first two games is a huge positive.

"Missing out last season on goal difference last year was tough so it is nice to have goals today to contribute to our tally.

"General play though, I thought we were a bit sloppy, which is generally a frustration, especially after a really good week of training.

"We still have a lot of improving to do, but six points from the first two games is a good position to be in."

Sunday was the Town's first home game of the season at the AGL Arena.

Sheehan continued: "We have had a lot of good moments here, so it was good to get a good crowd in, and they saw a lot of goals which was hopefully pleasing to them."

Lenna Gunning-Williams started her first game for Town since joining on loan from Tottenham Hotspur, scoring two goals.

Sheehan said: "We know she has a really bright future, and I think she will have an impact on our season.

"She offers a strong, attacking threat that we crave, she is really explosive and she also has an eye for goal.

"We are really pleased that she has settled into the team really well and get off the mark really early."

16-year-old Evie Williams scored her first senior goal for the club from a cross that floated into the back of the net.

Sheehan commented: "She's versatile and she's a wise head on young shoulders and will have a great future.

"It was a great strike, whether she meant it or not, but she will take a lot of confidence from that."

Forward Natasha Thomas scored two goals today, coming close to scoring another few.

She said: "I could have had a couple and we will go back to the drawing board and work on that more so we can be more clinical, but it was a good performance overall.

"We knew we wanted to make sure we kept the ball a lot more and second half we did that so really proud of the team.

"Momentum is key, that's what we wanted to take into the game.

"We have a long week and so it was good to mentally switch off to an extent in the second half, so we can make sure we are ready for Wednesday."

After missing out on promotion last season due to goal difference, this 7-1 victory has helped early with that number.

Thomas continued: "We want to make sure we are scoring as much as we can.

"We want to ensure we are as clinical as possible and make sure we are keeping clean sheets as much as possible too."
