McCarthy and Clegg at PLC AGM
Monday, 19th Nov 2012 12:13
Manager Mick McCarthy and chief executive Simon Clegg will answer shareholders’ questions at this year’s PLC AGM, which will take place on December 11th in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite in the Sir Alf Ramsey Stand (7.30pm). The meeting is open only to shareholders or their proxies.
The PLC owns 12.5% of Town and consists of the club's shareholding prior to Marcus Evans's takeover five years ago.
In a letter to shareholders, new PLC chairman and former club director Roger Finbow paid tribute to his predecessor David Sheepshanks, who stood down as chairman and as a director of the PLC in August, ending his formal ties with the Blues: “David provided inspirational leadership in both good and less good times; he brought to the club the benefits of his considerable football wisdom; he knew when to offer guidance to the manager whilst avoiding being an interfering chairman; and he was always accessible and approachable by supporters.
“Our loss is [the National Football Centre at] St George’s Park’s gain, but we should all feel proud that for the third time this club has been able to provide someone to take up a position of leadership within the English FA.”
The meeting will vote on the re-elections of John Kerr and Simon Clegg and the election of Supporters Club chair Elizabeth Edwards as directors of the PLC.
We understand that details of the club accounts for the year ending June 2012 are expected to be announced in time for discussion at the meeting.

Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
Desperate Data – the Extreme Numbers That Defined Ipswich Town’s Dismal Season by realprojection
Think Ipswich Town’s 2016/17 Championship record redefined tedium? Think again. Despite a low mid-table finish, set against a background of increasing supporter discontent at insipid management and directionless ownership – Town actually topped (or tailed) the league for many key attributes. Not the characteristics of a mundane team.
