Dozen goals!

Saturday 22 August 2015, Ipswich Athletic 12 Ipswich Valley Rangers 0, Suffolk and Ipswich League, Senior Division - Bourne Vale

Been a while since I have seen a game at the old John Player ground, but what a game to choose - twelve nil! What it does show is how hard it is for any team at this level to stay consistent over the years. Only last year, Valley Rangers were one of the best teams in the league but a mass exodus of players has seen that team go and if they do not get some new blood in, it could be a long season for them.

But what was impressive is that both team still attempted to play football on what was a perfect pitch - it was not till the last 10 minutes did we see a tackle (and the ensuing melee) that was so common at this level many years ago.
