North Walsham II 3 Ipswich IV 12

IPSWICH have finished the season with a 100% league record having won all 20 of their games.

The last win came after a long trip to Cromer against a North Walsham side who went into the game requiring a win to retain their position in the second promotion spot.

The first half was a real contest with Walsham's midfield pressing hard and not allowing Ipswich any time on the ball. However this was one of those rare spells when this Ipswich team lived up to its potential and a series of great goals were scored to leave Ipswich five up at half time.

In undoubtedly the best 35 minutes of the season from the visiting team, one goal was made by a 75 yard run by Glassford and finished by Owen Cook. This strike even included a rare highlight in the middle of the long run, a successful one-two with Sebborn.

Godbold switched things around in the second half but the goals continued to pour in and soon Ipswich were 11-0 up. Then Walsham, to their considerable credit, upped their tempo and took advantage of some slack defending to rattle in three goals, the first time Ipswich had conceded three.

During this spell Godbold became the fourth Ipswich player to miss a penalty stroke this season.

The game was neatly rounded off by Cook's highly impressive eighth goal of the game.
