East Division 5NE

Ipswich 6 Sudbury IV 0

MANY expected this game to be snowed, frosted or flooded off but the weather had cleared and the pitch glistened.

The drizzle fell as the teams took to the field. Sudbury hoping their defensive solidity would produce an upset against the run-away league leaders.

The game ebbed and flowed. Ipswich had most of the ball and created few chances and amazingly no short corners in the first half. However one trademark goal from Scarff broke the deadlock as he crashed the ball home from his customary four foot. Sudbury had the best chance of the half after a Williams defensive blunder but Kwan stood up big and strong and the attacker hit it wide.

In the second half Ipswich's superior fitness paid off and they won as many short corners as they could. This led to a number of goals including a fine Glassford first time effort and Scarff scoring his hat-trick.
