Town Reinstated In Cup
Friday, 1st Feb 2013 16:13
Town have been reinstated in the Suffolk Premier Cup after Felixstowe and Walton were removed from the competition having fielded an ineligible player during their 2-1 quarter-final victory over the Blues in early January.
A statement from the Suffolk FA reads: “In line with the rules of the Suffolk County FA Cup competitions, Felixstowe and Walton United FC have been removed from the 2012/13 Premier Cup and Ipswich Town FC have been reinstated to the competition.
“Felixstowe and Walton United FC played an ineligible player in their match against Ipswich Town FC on the 8th January and have therefore forfeited the match.”
Felixstowe and Walton have subsequently issued a statement outlining the circumstances surrounding their expulsion.
Town field a second string side in the tournament with a very young team largely made up of academy players having played in the last round. Previously, a stronger Blues side had beaten Walsham-le-Willows 5-1 in the first round.

14 Years in the Second Tier But Be Careful What You Wish For by ORomeoZondervan
It is true, Ipswich have spent 14 consecutive years in the second tier of English football. Some would be quite proud of this achievement but others view this as abject failure, point to others' successes and believe a change at top is the answer.
However, I think some perspective is required.
