Town to Hold Open Training Session
Wednesday, 13th Jul 2011 13:03
Town have announced that they will hold an open day at Portman Road on Thursday 28th July when fans will get the chance to watch the first team squad train. The Blues promised to hold a number of open training sessions after former manager Roy Keane’s policy of welcoming fans to Playford Road on a daily basis was scrapped earlier in the year.
Entry to the event, which will be held on the main pitch from 9.45am until 12.30pm, will be free with the lower tier of the Britannia Stand open via the Constantine Road entrance.
In addition to Town training, there will be a demonstration of freestyle football, plus other activities and refreshments.
Members of the Junior Blues will have a special viewing area and the opportunity to collect the players’ autographs as they leave the field, in addition to other exclusive activities.
Former boss Jim Magilton previously held an open training session at Portman Road in 2008.

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
