Ipswich Wanderers chairman Terry Fenwick is anticipating a busy and important December for his side.

Wanderers host a Mildenhall Town outfit under new management in Dean Greygoose tomorrow afternoon in Thurlow Nunn Premier Division action at Humber Doucy Lane.

Following that, the 10th-placed Premier Division new-boys face stern tests against Godmanchester Rovers and Kirkley & Pakefield, before finishing the month off with a home game against arch-rivals Whitton United in what promises to be a Christmas cracker of a football match.

“December is a massive month for us,” admitted Fenwick.

“I’m sure Mildenhall will give us a test, they’ve got a new manager to impress, but every game is tough.

“Whitton is a massive game we’re looking forward to just after Christmas (December 27), where we’ll hope for a big crowd, but we’ve got three more important league games before that.”

Last weekend, Wanderers played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with a Brantham Athletic side Fenwick admits he is slightly envious of.

Two weeks ago, Wanderers saw their FA Vase run come to an abrupt end with a 3-0 defeat at St Margaretsbury, while the Imps of Brantham became the only Suffolk club left in the competition after toppling Wembley FC in a thrilling 3-2 victory.

Brantham host Yaxley in the Third Round Proper of the competition tomorrow afternoon.

“It was disappointing to go out of the Vase,” admitted Fenwick.

“I couldn’t make the game myself but reports tell me that we just didn’t perform.

“It’s a shame as cup runs are important to the club, especially financially, but I’ve always said that our overall aim is to keep in the league we’re in.

“Keeping in the Premier Division is a must for Ipswich Wanderers Football Club – that’s the most important thing.”
