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.

Phoenix From the Flames by SaleAway
The Opta stat that Town had won more points than any other EFL team from losing positions surprised me somewhat as the view on the TWTD Forum and amongst fans I've spoken to is that when we go behind we lose control a bit and tend towards hoofball.
Have I Really Fallen Out of Love With Ipswich Or Have I Just Grown Up? by classof81
Most parents use pets to teach children important life lessons. Children become acutely aware of the concepts of growing old and death as they bury their beloved hamster in the back garden.

Hark Now Hear - This is Our Time by Pickersblue22
This one feels different. After nearly eight and a half years of hurt, this one just feels like it may all fall into place for Town. A chance to bury dark memories of Grant Holt, Lewis Grabban, Bradley Johnson, Nathan Redmond, Alex Neil et al.
