Bidding Open for Places in Legends Match
Monday, 20th Feb 2017 09:24

You can now make your bid for a place in this year’s Ipswich Town Legends match, your chance to grace the same pitch as the likes of Matt Holland, Kieron Dyer and Titus Bramble.

Now in its fourth year, the organisers have added a twist to this year’s charity game, which takes place on Sunday 23rd April (KO 3pm) at Bury Town’s Ram Meadow, with the legends evenly split between the two sides.

The match, which is supported by TWTD, has raised more than £10,000 since it started and this year's game is once again supporting the ITFC Academy and My WiSH Charity’s Forget-Me-Not Dementia Campaign.

Previous legends have included John Wark, Russell Osman, James Scowcroft and Shane Supple and you could grab your chance to play with or against them with bidding having started at 9am this morning. It runs until 5pm on Friday 24th February.

The minimum bid for a place is £150 with anyone interested asked to email from Monday morning with their maximum bid.

The make-up of the two squads will be decided nearer matchday, but anyone who would like to play with a family member or friend should request this in the email.

Simon Milton, academy director at Ipswich Town, said: “The ITFC Legends match has been a great event to co-host and we wanted to do something a bit different this year.

“So everyone will get a chance to share a dressing room with a set of legends and fans will be given the opportunity to see some of Ipswich’s most famous old faces lock horns against each other.”

On the day, there will also be plenty of opportunity to talk and meet with the legends, both for players and supporters alike."

Sue Smith, fundraising manager for My WiSH Charity which supports West Suffolk Hospital, said: “We are delighted to once again be teaming up with Ipswich Town for this great event.

“With this new twist, we are looking forward to providing something a little different at an event which is always played in great spirits and has been a fantastic fundraiser.”
