Day Faces Charity Assault Course Challenge
Wednesday, 8th May 2013 16:15
Supporters Trust committee member Carl Day and nine others will be taking on the challenge of completing a 20-mile, 200-obstacle assault course, the world’s largest, at Burghley on Saturday to raise money for children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Carl, whose previous charity exploits have included running the London Marathon dressed in full armour, would welcome both individual and corporate sponsorship: “I and nine others have formed Team Procurus in our attempt to complete the longest, hardest assault course in the world on 11th May 2013.
“We are looking for both normal sponsorship and for those companies wanting to be part of this you can purchase advertising space on our shirts.”
Carl, 46, who recently stepped down from his role as Trust chairman after a decade, admits to being concerned about what he’s going to be putting himself through: “This is going to hurt and I am slightly terrified about this challenge but I will put myself and the rest of Team Procurus through hell to justify your support!”

Sorry Folks! by stevieiriswattii
For 25 years I have been away from the area and only able to attend a game or so a season, this was after previously being a season ticket holder in the late 80s.
Cole Skuse, In the Middle of Our Pitch by everhopeful
The ball is shifted sideways. There’s space to go forwards, space to meet it, space to shoot. But just as people all around Portman Road begin to lift up in their seats, they realise with an upsetting sense of inevitability – it’s Cole Skuse.
Is It All Over? by paulthebluealien
Sorry, that title is meant to be completely tongue-in-cheek and a slight dig at those Ipswich fans who have suddenly become disillusioned with our promotion push over the course of a single game.
A Day to Define History by RaymondovicBlue
As we celebrate the day Christians say defined history - our beloved Town take on high flying Bournemouth in the game that will surely define our season - and possibly theirs. They are high flying and I'll be looking to the Sky... as I sit in front of the TV in the home of many Bournemouth fans to shout for my team!
Crunch Time - Next Two Games Likely to Decide our Fate by Pickersblue22
This is undoubtedly the most exciting time to be an Ipswich Town supporter in a decade. For the first time since the days of Joe Royle, we have a chance of promotion, possibly automatic. Being sat in sixth place with seven games left, the task is in our own hands.
