Tractor Girls Sign Keeper Quantrill
Wednesday, 4th Aug 2021 12:23
Ipswich Town Women have signed goalkeeper Sarah Quantrill from FA Women’s Championship side London Bees.
The experienced 31-year-old has penned a one-year deal with an option for a further season.
Quantrill started her career with the Arsenal academy before being part of the side which won the Women's FA Cup in 2010/11.
She moved on to Chelsea a year later and won an FA Cup final runners-up medal following a penalty shoot-out defeat to Birmingham City in 2011/12.
After three years in West London she joined Liverpool with whom she won the Women's Super League during her first season.
Norfolk-born Quantrill, who has made 133 appearances in the Women's Super League and Women's Championship, moved on to Millwall Lionesses in 2014 before joining London Bees four years later.
While with the Bees she was Championship Player of The Month in January 2020 and was the club captain last season, but has opted to move closer to home ahead of 2021/22.
“The club's going places so it's nice to be involved in a club with some ambition,” Quantrill told the club website. “I came into training and from that point onwards it was a no-brainer.”

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.
