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.”

Please can we see some double-header matches next pre-season (or even on cup weekends?), whereby families can come to Portman road and see a men's and a women's match? It would really attract a big crowd, and would raise the profile of the women's team no end.

This Club is going places - both in the men's and women's game. Welcome, Sarah

Welcome to the club Sarah. An impressive CV!

Does anyone know what the aims are for women's team next season? Are we going for promotion/mid-table safety?

BcarefulwhatUWish4 - if you listen to the girls interviews who have signed their first pro deals, they all talk about back to back promotion. So their aim is clear.

The club brought out a supporter pack in the aborted 2019/20 season : '4-1 Journey' meaning promotion from tier 4 to tier 1.
They are ultimately aiming for the WSL.
And with the talented young squad of players (9 have made the England U19 squad in the last two seasons) I wouldn't bet against them.
