ITFC Women in Home Action Against Actonians
Saturday, 7th Sep 2019 10:59
Ipswich Town Women will be looking to build on Wednesday’s 4-1 derby thrashing of Norwich City when they face Actonians at the Goldstar Ground, Felixstowe on Sunday afternoon (KO 2pm).
The victory over the Canaries, watched by a record crowd of 761, took the Tractor Girls to second in the FA WNL Division One South East, while Actonians are in sixth.
Manager Joe Sheehan wants his side to maintain and then better the level of performance from the derby victory and the 4-0 win at Kent Football United last Sunday.
“Now we’ve set the bar over the last two games we’ll see if we’re able to sustain that level week in week out," he said.
"We’ve still got lots of improving to do and we hope our progress will continue this Sunday.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.

When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
