Town ladies cap fantastic end to season with county cup victory

A FANTASTIC second half of the season from Ipswich Town Womens FC has been capped by a comprehensive Suffolk County Cup final victory yesterday.

The ladies side came back from a goal behind to eventually beat a plucky Lowestoft side thanks to goals from Rebecca Vaughan, Dani Bitten (2), Michelle Allum, Kat Parnell and Amanda Everett, the latter also missing a penalty.

The team have gone the entire second half of the South East Women’s Combination League unbeaten, beating Norwich twice and finishing third.

Mark Lawrence, club secretary, said: “The team have been exceptional since Christmas and they did well to overcome a young Lowestoft side to win the cup.”

There was even more for Bitten to celebrate after she was named Suffolk’s player of the season.
