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."
