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.

Cycle of Hurt by Steve_M
It's hard not to see a club that has got nearly every big decision wrong and come out on the wrong side of almost every promotion or relegation fight over 19 years as being in anything other than terminal decline. The very obvious exception to that pattern of failure was the appointment of Mick McCarthy and his first few years here.
Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
