Ex-Players On Tour of Suffolk
Saturday, 13th May 2017 10:26
Former Blues Russell Osman, Titus Bramble, Mick Stockwell and Alan Lee, Town’s U18s coach, are among 100 cyclists taking part in TEAMITFC’s Tour of Suffolk charity cycle ride this weekend.
TEAMITFC will ride 150 miles over two days, leaving Portman Road at 9.15am on Sunday before arriving back at the club on Monday at 4pm.
The trip will take them through the Suffolk countryside and then, after staying overnight at Potters Resort in Hopton, back to Ipswich down the coast via Southwold and Woodbridge.
Simon Milton, Town’s director of academy sales, who is the man behind TEAMITFC, is unable to take part in the ride as a cyclist having ruptured his achilles in the recent legends match in Bury.
In each of the last three years TEAMITFC has taken on a cycle challenge which between them have helped raise more than £250,000 for charity.
Also taking part in the ride is Shaun Whiter, one of the local footballers seriously injured in a hit and run incident in Newmarket last July.
Whiter, who played local football for Newmarket Town and Soham Town Rangers, will be completing the ride on a specially-designed bike, having had both his legs amputated when he and his friend Joey Abbs were struck by a car as they were changing a wheel by the roadside, and will also be raising money for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
This trip will see funds raised for Prostate Cancer UK, the Friends of Ipswich Town and various other nominated charities.

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.
