Ipswich Town Women have postponed all footballing activity due to the coronavirus activity.

The Premier League and EFL made the move on Friday, calling off games until at least April 4 to help limit the spread of the disease.

Some non-league games were played as normal over the weekend, as was the women’s County Cup clash against Needham Market at Stowmarket on Sunday.

The Blues won that game 3-1, booking their place in the final, but it remains to be seen when they are next in action.

A club statement reads: “Ipswich Town FC Women have today made the decision to postpone all football activity until further notice amid the outbreak of COVID-19.

“In the mean time we wish the utmost safety to our players, staff and supporters.

“Stay safe and see you soon.”
