THIS is a big couple of months for Ipswich Wanderers, with the Humber Doucy Lane-based club poised to make a splash in two cup competitions.
They travel to Lowestoft Town for a fourth round FA Vase tie on Saturday week. If they beat their Ridgeons League, Premier Division rivals they will be in the last 16 - with the final expected to return top Wembley this year.
And on March 13 or 14, John Clarkson's Wanderers have been drawn to entertain Ipswich Town in the semi-final of the Club Colours Suffolk Premier Cup.

But before then they have a stiff Vase hurdle to overcome in current Ridgeons champions Lowestoft.
