King Signs Pro Deal With Tractor Girls
Friday, 23rd Jul 2021 14:30
Midfielder Eloise King has become Ipswich Town Women’s third professional player having signed a one-year deal with an option for a further season.
The 19-year-old follows Sophie Peskett and Paige Peake, who penned pro contracts earlier in the summer.
Lifelong Town fan King came through the Blues’ WSL academy set-up and made her senior debut in August 2019, quickly establishing herself in the side.
In March 2020 she netted her first senior hat-trick in the 10-0 away victory over rivals Norwich City.
In total, King has made 19 senior appearances and has scored 13 goals for the Tractor Girls and has been capped by England at every level from U15s to U19s.
“I'm delighted! Obviously it's my childhood club so it everything to me and I'm just glad it's done now," she told iFollow Ipswich.
“As a kid it was something I always dreamed about and playing football for this club is something I always had in my mind as something I wanna do.”

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative and Don’t Mess with Mr Inbetween by dusth
Tracking through the forums and reading the comments on TWTD is a weird rollercoaster these days, more extremely polarised and more vitriolic than I can remember. We’ve never fallen so far and regretted it so much.
