Pre Match Chat –

The Tractor Girls new club Membership, True Blue, will be talked about as the club brings out it’s new Season Ticket promotion. Fans will also be pondering if Maria Boswell will keep her place at Right Back after a Player Of The Match performance against Billericay last Sunday on her First Team debut.

Team Talk –

Lindsey Cooper was taken off at Half Time last Sunday at New Lodge after taking a knock. Manager, Joe Sheehan, will be hopeful the big Centre Half will return to action this week. Molly Sutherland and Amy-Leigh Abrehart missed out last week as they joined the Academy side at Needham Market for the Suffolk Cup Final and will be hopeful of a return to the First Team this week.

The Opposition –

Cambridge City head to Felixstowe to play their 3rd game in 7 days after having a midweek fixture against rivals Cambridge United that ended 3-3. City like the press and double up on opposition players before hitting a counter attack so the Tractor Girls will need to be quick on the ball to avoid being caught in possession and needing to track back quickly. Noriwch took all 3 points from the Cambridge side last weekend with a 3-1 win. Cambridge City’s Charlotte Gillies has started the season in fine form bagging 2 goals in the opening 2 games.

Players To Watch –

Eyes will be on Maria Boswell after last weeks fine display but also, summer signing, Georgia Allan. The Ipswich Midfielder made her debut coming on at Half Time in last weeks 3-0 win at Billericay and turned the game in Town’s favour with her dominant display in midfield and assist for Sophie Peskett’s goal. Maddie Biggs also come on last Sunday and got herself on the scoresheet while coming close to getting a second shortly after.
