This was the Womens U21 team in the cup quarter final.
I'm no expert on Women's football, but you'd assume Man City pump serious money into their girls academy if the rest of the club is anything to go by - including the Man City Women's team who are top of the league and still in all the cups having had a cursory Google.
I spoke to a friend who is involved with the women's set up at club and he says we have a first class academy and some quality youngsters coming through, and hope to be in the Super League in 5 years. A couple of youngsters in England youth squad.
This season with change of manager and recruitment been a bit of a wash out, and with only one promotion place up for grabs a bit of a disappointment.
The young girls face Arsenal in the semis - would be good if they can continue to do well. The club is doing well at U18 and U23 level on the mens side this year, with both heading for the play offs - be nice if the girls can have some success.
Some classic Suffolk commentry from the crowd here, especially after the FK goal
🎥 | @ITFCWomen's U21s defeated Manchester City 4-1 in the @FAWSL Academy Cup yesterday afternoon to progress into the semi-final.
Was in their for the first time in ages for the Blue Monday live event, and just amazed at how terrible it is in there. By the time the event finished around 10pm there was about 4 other people in the bar on a Saturday night.
Of the 6 or 8 beers they have on tap only 2 weren't out.
It never seems to be open in the week, it is only busy from about 12-3 on Saturday then 5-7 if we have a home game.
The bar, which is in an absolutely prime spot between Willis, Axa, on the walk back to the station for most in town with a very nice outdoor area in front of it is run like they don't care.
It amazes me, that could be one of the best spots in town if it was run well, do a bit of food at lunch for all the workers around it and perfect spot for after work drinks.
Such a shame we are likely down because the Championship is a great well balanced league with some real quality and a good balance between that and will to win, fight and commitment etc.
Thoroughly enjoyable though, and a well deserved point after a terrible start - this formation works, and that young midfield was immense - I esepcially liked Chalobah in that deep role as he is so much more mobile than Skuse and has an excellent passing range. He makes a few mistakes, but they are all positive mistakes.
And, whisper it quietly, but it looks like Teddy Bishop is back - that new contract is smart business.
4 academy boys played too, and all added something different
