On Monday 9th May the Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Final was played between Kirkley and Pakefield FC Royals and Ipswich Town Ladies.
The kick off was at 7pm and with HomeStore being the main sponsors Martin and John had the honour of meeting both teams before kick-off and we were all able to watch from the hospitality seats in the Cobbold stand.
Ipswich started the game as they meant to go on and after just 10 mins were 1-0 up thanks to the opening goal by Hollie Clement. Three minutes later Molly Hall made it 2-0 to Ipswich followed by Libby Dixon at 28mins and then two goals from Amanda Crump at 38mins and 42 mins, bringing the half time score to 5-0 to Ipswich.

With our new sponsorship deal for Suffolk FA Girl’s and Women’s Football for the 2015-2016 season and everyone questioning me on do I have an interest in football, and who do I support etc. I thought I would delve a bit deeper into the history of women’s football and get a better sense of the women’s game and how it has developed.
It really only seems that the women’s game to has come to our full attention in the past few years, however there is some tentative evidence that the women’s football, not surprisingly, has been around as long as the men’s game.
