Week 15 Results – Points for All Teams in Action

Men’s 1s: 2-2 draw vs Ipswich 2 (Home)
(Pears, Skelton)

Newmarket Men’s 1s battled to a hard-fought 2-2 draw at home to Ipswich 2s and were pleased to welcome back creative midfielders Ollie Wade and Mike Skelton from injury. Despite the Christmas layer of mince pies and turkey covering the frames of Newmarket’s favourite twelve sons, Town started strongly and soon found themselves creating a number of golden chances. It was through one of these that Skelton struck the home side into the lead, a clinical counter attack and smooth team move that sent the assembled hordes into raptures.

However, Ipswich grew into the game and replied soon after; a passage of sloppy Town play saw the ball played in behind and drilled past keeper Iain Robinson for 1-1. Not to be deterred, Newmarket soon struck again through Mark Pears who was afforded a rare run out up front – a task he took to with great gusto.

After the break, Robinson produced a number of smart saves but was forced to scoop the ball off the backboard for a second time as a low short corner effort bamboozled the defence and nestled home for 2-2. The game began to break down a little as both teams began to tire and pick up the odd card, before the contest fizzled out with the number of Newmarket walking wounded forcing them to settle for the draw. While both teams had chances to win the game, especially late on, it was widely accepted that a draw was the fairest result.

On a frosty morning that saw many games called off around the leagues, Newmarket Ladies’ 2s were very impressive in a convincing 5-1 win away to Haverhill Ladies. Goals from Vicky Beeton, Tracy Cockerill, Di Farrell-Thomas, Hannah Fox and Jazz Freed showed that Town are no one-woman team and are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in Division 4NW(S).
