A hardy town fan made her mark at Portman Road this weekend by smashing a hat-trick penalties in the back of the net.

Jennifer Jo Lees, a transgender woman from Leiston, has become one of only three people to successfully complete a half-time challenge at the club, which puts her in for a chance of winning a cruise holiday.

The 29-year-old said the experience was “amazing” and “surreal”.

She added: “It is the perfect end to my first week living as a woman and the support that has been shown to me since then has been incredible and I can’t wait to do it again.”

Ms Lees, who has backed Ipswich Town since the age of nine, will compete in the competition final on April 30.
