CHERRIES women have added Ipswich Town to their summer schedule, with plans now finalised for their pre-season fixture list.

Steve Cuss’s side returned to training on Friday, ahead of their latest crack for promotion out of the fourth tier.

They narrowly missed out on the title last season, pipped by Exeter City, despite going unbeaten.

Cherries will begin their pre-season schedule against third tier Ipswich at Ringwood on Sunday, July 28 (2pm).

They then face three promoted teams, starting with Welsh outfit Penybont. That game is still happening as first advertised on August 4 (2pm), but will now take place at Canford Arena.

Championship Portsmouth then come to Ringwood on August 7 (7.45pm), before Cuss’s side welcome Exeter to the same venue on August 11 (2pm).

Cherries are again set to be part of a 12-team Division One South West this season.
