Butcher, Deller and Fans Pay Tribute to Beattie on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 21st Sep 2018 17:06
Blues legend Terry Butcher and former darts world champion Keith Deller will be joining host Mark Murphy, New Tractorboy and TWTD's Phil Ham on BBC Radio Suffolk’s Life’s a Pitch on Saturday from the FanZone, where there will be a book of condolence for the show’s legend in residence Kevin Beattie, who died last Sunday, aged 64 (12-2pm).
Beattie had been a member of the regular team on the show since it started seven years ago.
Butcher has said Beattie was his hero when he was growing up and went on to play alongside him for Town, while Deller was a ballboy at Portman Road and used to travel to games with the player many believe is the greatest in the club’s history.
In addition to Butcher and Deller, the show will talk to supporters in the FanZone about their memories of Beattie, where they will also be able to sign the book of condolence.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also now on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
