ITFC Women Draw Manchester City Away in FA Cup
Monday, 27th Jan 2020 18:52

Ipswich Town Women have been handed a plum tie away against FA Women’s Super League leaders and current holders Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

The game will be played at the Etihad Campus on Sunday 16th February (KO 1pm).

The Tractor Girls are in round five for the first time in their history having beaten Huddersfield, who play in a division above the Blues, 4-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday. Town are the first fourth tier side to reach the fifth round.

Reacting to the drawn on BBC Look East, 16-year-old Maddie Biggs, who scored a hat-trick at Huddersfield, said: "We'll give it a good go, I think."

Skipper Amanda Crump added on Twitter: "Speechless! This will definitely be the highlight of my football career."

Hmm its the nearest most of us will get to going to the Etihad for a while... definitely maybe worth going along to sing about cigarettes and alcohol, whilst standing on the shoulders of giants. We can celebrate a win with a champagne supernova, and hiss it all up a wonderwall

Shame it's not at Portman Road—that would have been fun :-)

Pendejo - it's at the Etihad Campus, next to, but not THE stadium. Still a pretty good venue and maybe the best draw they could have hoped for. Blaze of Glory and all that. I'll be going. :-)

Maybe the club could do something similar and set up a couple of temporary stands around the practice pitch so ITFC women can play their home games at Portman Road.

Will we actually make any money from this? I'm sure Evans would like to know.
