"Ipswich has always been a community club so it's nice to give something back"

Town defender Luke Woolfenden was present at Portman Road this afternoon to support EFL's Day of Action.

EFL's Day of Action is an annual celebration of the impact that all 72 EFL clubs have on their community which is now into its fifth year.

To mark the occassion, Blues' Community Trust hosted a girls' football festival on the field turf beside Portman Road with ten local primary schools taking part in a fun-filled day.

Woolfy joined in with some of the activities that the Trust's coaches had laid on for the girls, which included having a go on the inflatable penalty shootout, dribbling and close control drills before culminating in a round-robin style tournament.

"Ipswich has always been a community club so it's nice to come here and give something back," Luke told the Club website.

"I enjoyed being out there, and taking part in the actitivies. It was so nice to see smiles on the girls' faces playing football after not being able to do so through the lockdown."

Members of Town's women's team dropped by throughout the day. In the morning, Sophie Peskett, Maddie Biggs and Maria Boswell were present, before Eloise King and Anna Grey visited in the afternoon to surprise the pupils.
