Ringrose unfortunate to get a blow to his hand had to leave the pitch but Langton proved an excellent replacement.

During the second half the home team made good use of their subs and this proved to be their ace, as the tiring Chelmsford midfield struggled to cope with the Ipswich attack.

Foster was denied by the alert umpire spotting a foot but then Curzon bagged a pair of tap ins to put the result beyond doubt, although Gill scored a consolation goal slotting home at the near post. Sampson then crashed home from a penalty corner to complete the scoring.

Next week sees Ipswich making the short trip for a local derby against Colchester and then on Sunday travel to East Grinstead to play Jersey in the over 40s cup.
