U18s in FA Youth Cup Action at Gillingham
Friday, 11th Jan 2019 10:59
The Blues’ U18s are in FA Youth Cup fourth round action against Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium this evening (KO 7pm). The winners of the tie will face Southampton or Watford away in the next round.
The youngsters, who are coached by Adem Atay and Kieron Dyer, beat non-league Andover Town 4-0 in their third round tie at Portman Road last month.
The Gills won 2-1 away at Blackburn in the third round having beaten AFC Wimbledon 3-1 and Cheltenham 4-0, also on their travels, in the previous rounds.
Town have won the competition on three occasions, in 1973, 1975 and most recently in 2005.

It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.

It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.

Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
