Tractor Girls Draw Canaries in Women's FA Cup
Monday, 19th Oct 2020 13:53
Ipswich Town Women have been drawn away to local rivals Norwich City in the third qualifying round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup with the tie set to be played at the Nest on Sunday 1st November (KO 1pm).
The teams met at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe at the same stage of the competition last year with the Tractor Girls running out 6-1 victors.
That was one of three derbies last season with the Blues winning the league games 4-1 at home and 10-0 away.
Town are currently top of the FAWNL South East Division One with a 100 per cent record and are still to concede, while the Canaries are third from bottom.
Last season the Tractor Girls reached the fifth round of the FA Cup before being beaten away by Manchester City - who play Everton in the delayed final later this month - the first time a fourth tier club had done so and the first time the club had progressed so far in their history.

Power of Motivation by LegendRay
The strangest and most disappointing aspect of this season has been lack of bounce.
Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
