Ipswich Town will be looking to go one step further in the forthcoming season’s Women’s FA Cup.

That’s the aim of manager Joe Sheehan, whose side became the first fourth tier team in the competition’s history to reach the last 16, before losing 10-0 away to holders Manchester City in February.

Ipswich, who play in National League Division One South, won six matches to get that far and were the lowest-ranked team remaining before bowing out to a City side packed with full internationals.

Online entries are now open for the 2020-21 season, and Sheehan is targeting a place in the quarter-finals.

He said: “We are very much looking forward to getting back on the grass and starting our new campaign, notably the Women’s FA Cup which contributed vastly to our success last season.
