Tractor Girls Host Keynsham Aiming to Hit Top
Sunday, 19th Sep 2021 09:26
Ipswich Town Women will be aiming to return to the top of the FAWNL Southern Premier Division when they host Keynsham at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe this afternoon (KO 2pm).
The Tractor Girls, who are yet to concede a goal this season, are currently second behind Southampton on goal difference with both sides having a 100 per cent record but with the Saints not having a game this weekend.
However, manager Joe Sheehan doesn’t see much significance in being top at this stage of the season.
“It’s not important at all, if I’m honest,” he said. “There’s a lot of football still to be played, there are a lot of teams in our division and we’ve only just started, we’re so early in our campaign.
“So, we’re still making small steps to try and be a really good team, a team that can try and be high performers, a team that can try and be as consistent as possible and the league table at this stage is kind of irrelevant to that.”
He added: “It was a nice break last week, playing in the League Cup. We’re now looking forward to getting back to league action and hopefully can continue the fine form that we’re in.”

The Professional Footballers Who Never Play Football by Broganonthewing
There have been many changes to the English game in the last 40 years. The majority of these changes, if not all of them have all been influenced or dictated by money, both the making and saving of it.
Catch-19 by LegendRay
How many others on the site remember April 15 1961, the day, as TWTD recalls, when Town last beat Lincoln away in the league?
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.
