Ipswich IV 5 Sudbury II 2

Newly promoted Ipswich IV made an excellent start to the season in the Suffolk Premier League with victory over Sudbury II.

With a few new players keen to make a positive impact on the team and some familiar faces playing in new positions, including Lucy Dunnett playing in goal, the win was even more impressive.

The game started positively with two early goals helping to settle the team, the first from newcomer Rachel Adomokan who touched it in on the near post, the second from a well worked short corner, touched in on the back post by Danni Kay.

Ipswich then sat back and ended up conceding a goal from a well hit Sudbury short corner.
