Second Team Cup Round Two

Telford & Wrekin 1 Ipswich II 2

Ipswich's cup run got off to a good start and, with three 14 year olds and two 16 year olds, it was a very young squad that faced a tough test.

Paul Calver brought the average age up to 22 as Ipswich came out the blocks brilliantly with youngsters Ben Underwood, Max Underwood, Jono Gall, Ben Glading and Josh Godfrey all impressing and destroying the opposition.

Ipswich went 2-0 up through two brilliant strikes from Gall who did all captain Reed's running for him.

Man of the match was closely contested between Gall and Ben Underwood, but on this occasion Underwood just edged it letting nothing come down his side in a remarkable performance.

Underwood was sent-off for the first time in his career.

Ipswich will host the holders Havant at home in the next round with the youngsters again looking to make a name for themselves on December 9.
