Ipswich Town Ladies are hosting an open evening in the players’ lounge at Portman Road, on August 27 between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.

The team are still two or three players short for the new season, although primarily this event is designed to attract people to the club to operate in a number of different roles.

“We want to get the message out there to people who may want to get involved at the club,” said first-team manager Ralph Pruden.

“There are opportunities to get involved on the management committee, to push the club forward, while we are looking for a main sponsor and also offer other opportunities, such as individual player sponsorship.

“If people want to attend, we just ask that they contact myself, so we can keep up to date with numbers.”

A week later (August 30), they will then have home advantage –venue to be confirmed – as they face fierce rivals Norwich City in a shoot-out to reach the first round proper of the League Cup.

Training is on Tuesday evenings on Portman Road’s 3G pitches and runs between 7.45-9pm.

It has yet to be decided where the team will play their home games this season, and more than one destination could be used, although the club’s favoured home ground is Ipswich Wanderers.
