IES Charity Day 2017

A huge thank you to everyone who attended and organised our annual charity tournament today, held at Ipswich High School for Girls. The day was a big success, raising money from the tournament, BBQ, lucky numbers grid and facepainting – plus lots of generous donations. It was a fantastic day and together we managed to raise £1,100 for St Elizabeth’s Hospice!

Thank you to Kevin Burch for filming the day and putting together the above footage.

IES ‘Black’ 0-3 Framlingham A – Match Report

IES ladies black played against a formidable Fram A this evening. The ladies battled hard but came away with a 3-0 loss. Kay O’Reilly was on fire as goalkeeper and kept the score from being much higher with some impressive saves and clearances.

Despite some good movement up the pitch and lots of pressure, IES just couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net.

IES black have their last summer league game next Thursday.
