Ipswich 8 Norwich Exiles 0

After a number of weeks with limited availability, Ipswich went to the other extreme, creating something of a record with five fit substitutes.

The home teams confidence returned with a workmanlike performance that saw off Norwich without too much trouble. It took around ten minutes before Ipswich opened their account when Cutting's miss hit shot cannoned into the roof of the net. Curzon then added his name to the score sheet with one of the easiest goals ever scored as he tapped in with the visitors defence in a daze.

Bryce got in on the act with a vintage reverse stick shot, before Foster's cross found the back board to bring the half time scores to 4-0. Captain Steward, while happy with the score line, was not impressed at the quality of play and suggested a few thoughts for the second half.

After the break it was again fairly one way traffic but to be fair to the visitors they did create a number of chances and never gave up. Goals were scored by Cutting, Curzon, Wake and Wheaton and left the Exiles bemoaning the day they found Ipswich more or less at full strength.
