Cresswell and Murray Pipped at Golf Day
Wednesday, 10th Oct 2012 21:17
A team featuring Aaron Cresswell and Ronan Murray were pipped into second place by just one point at today’s Town Golf Day at Ufford Park, behind victors Burdens. Cresswell and Murray's ITFC Boys finished on 87 points with Stuart King Tools in third on 86.
Despite having been odds-on for a last place finish, The Hackers - consisting of TWTD’s Phil Ham, Jason Dozzell, ex-Ipswich Witches sponsorship coordinator Horry Money and Tom Huntley - finished in a creditable 17th position out of the 21 teams, despite an horrific buggy crash which was largely put down to Dozzell’s lack of recent experience behind the wheel.
Paul Goddard won the players/coaches competition, just pipping Chris Hutchings and Micky Stockwell into second and third.
Also showing their prowess off the tee were Luke Chambers and Daryl Murphy from the current squad, coaches Mark Kennedy, Sean McCarthy, Russell Osman and Bryan Klug, and former Blues John Wark, Mick Mills, Allan Hunter, Charlie Woods, Bryan Hamilton and Simon Milton. Manager Paul Jewell missed out as he was away at a family wedding.
Team and individual places are available for Town’s spring golf day on Wednesday 20th March at a venue yet to be confirmed. Contact the club’s sales team on 01473 400594, email@example.com for details.

Where Are We Now? by Steve_M
Well, ultimately it is now a question of a change of manager now or at the end of the season. Mick McCarthy has dragged the cycle out to four years rather than the 18 months of his more hapless predecessors but there is clearly a need for a fresh approach at the club.
The Moore You Ignore Mick by Mullet
Day 14 in the TWTD madhouse and all is far from clear. Months of second-rate drama and second-rate football seem to end with a quiet ovation for Mick McCarthy and his men. With his captain coming out in the media to air publicly the wounds of he and his colleagues, another young player is welcomed and warned off it by Mick.
The Identity Crisis of Modern Football by wkj
Like so many others my age, my Grandad bought me up on Ipswich Town. A great club with family ties, involvement and commitment to the larger Suffolk community, and a privilege to support. In those days it seems a lot of clubs had similar connections to their fans.
A Belated Christmas Carol of Sorts by monty_radio
The Marley deal was dead, no doubt about it. Scrooge looked again as the knocker smiled in a kindly, fair-play sort of fashion, then slowly faded away. He turned the key and entered his very own gloomy arena. A large chunk of ceiling, disturbed by the mere turning of the key, struck him as he climbed the rickety stair to the upper section.

None of the club’s successful managers over the years had massive resources available to them, but none have had to compete in leagues as inequitable as the current Championship.
