EACH Logo to Appear on Junior Shirts
Wednesday, 6th Jun 2018 16:27
Town’s junior replica shirts will bear the logo of local charity EACH (East Anglia's Children's Hospices) during the season ahead, the club has announced.
EFL rules prevent gambling companies, such as new Blues sponsors Magical Vegas, from appearing on children’s kit.
Rather than the junior kits featuring no sponsor, as had been the case with away shirts sold during the second half of last season, Magical Vegas have paid for the EACH logo to appear on all those already manufactured ahead of the new season.
“We are aware of the fantastic work EACH do and for us this was an easy decision to make,” Konstantinos Veletas, a spokesperson for the Stride Gaming group, the owners of Magical Vegas, told the club site.
Graham Butland, chief executive of EACH, added: “I’d like to thank Magical Vegas for the opportunity to see our logo on the front of Town’s junior shirts this coming season - and we also look forward to seeing the EACH name on the back of the first-team shirts well as we continue our close relationship with the football club.”
Town’s new home kit is now available to pre-order from the online shop, with the away kit on sale at Planet Blue and online from Friday 8th June.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
