Hethersett Ladies football team are in cup action again this weekend when they visit Ipswich Town in the quarter-finals of the Norfolk and Suffolk Cup.

Ipswich are in a higher league than Hethersett and will provide a stiff examination of just how far the Norfolk side have come over the past two seasons.

Hethersett Ladies completed a hat-trick of wins over Dagenham and Redbridge as they progressed comfortably to the quarter-finals of the Eastern Region Women's League Cup with a 5-0 win.

The previous week Hethersett struggled to beat Dagenham 2-1 in the league and it looked as if this match would go a similar way until a powerful second half display saw the home side score four times.
