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.
One of the best public relations exercises of the season has been Ipswich Town's decision to re-enter the Premier Cup.
This has re-kindled interest in the competition, and already provided Felixstowe and Walton United and Needham Market with lucrative and memorable home ties.

Wanderers hope to make the most of the first 'Ipswich derby', and it should be a Red Letter Day for a club that only began life as a Saturday outfit 20 years ago.
But before then they have a stiff Vase hurdle to overcome in current Ridgeons champions Lowestoft.
