Ipswich 4 Shefford and Sandy 0

Ipswich maintained their 100% record and the lead at the top of the league against second placed Shefford, a team that they had never played before.

Shefford proved to be a difficult team to beat but also lacked discipline as they questioned the umpire's decisions throughout and had harsh words to their own team mates.

The home team were solid in defence and Steward in goal was rarely called upon. Curzon opened the scoring however, sweeping home a right wing cross and then Glading swept wide after a superb run by Foster. Cutting increased the lead before half time but Ipswich were aware that a two goal cushion was not enough against the hard working visitors.

Midway through the second half Ipswich were grateful when Bryce converted following a penalty corner and Fletton provided some grit in midfield to thwart the Shefford attack, and when beaten Gray was also in commanding form.

The usually dependable Shefford defence then shot themselves in the foot when a quick free hit was intercepted by Fletton who passed to Glading to slide the ball home to put the game beyond the reach of the visitors. In fact Glading should have scored again but his effort was well saved.

Next week Ipswich travel to take on Cambridge City.
