PORTMAN Road is to host the Suffolk FA Women’s Cup final for the first time this season.

The final, between Ipswich Town and Lowestoft Town, will take place on Monday, May 13, kick-off 7pm.

Suffolk FA chief executive Laura Smith said: “I spoke to (Ipswich Town secretary) Sally Webb, who has been very supportive of hosting our finals in the past, about how women’s and girls’ football has taken off across the county, and she said the club would be happy to host the final.

“We are really pleased and I doubt any of the players involved will have played in a stadium the size of Portman Road or at a professional ground before.”

The final will be one of four Suffolk FA finals to be staged at Portman Road this season, the dates of which have now all been confirmed.
