Lambert's FA Cup Winner's Medal Not Stolen
Wednesday, 13th Feb 2019 11:25
Blues legend Mick Lambert’s FA Cup winner’s medal wasn’t stolen in the burglary which took place at his Ipswich home last month after all.
A statement on the Suffolk Constabulary website reads: “Following an appeal made in relation to a burglary in Ipswich on Sandringham Close, the victim has now come forward to say one of the items originally thought stolen has now been located. The incident took place on Friday 18 January at some point between 6pm and 7.45pm.
“The victim is now happy to state a FA Cup medal, originally thought stolen in the burglary, has been found.”
Lambert came on as a sub for goalscorer Roger Osborne (with whom he is picture above) in the 1978 final at Wembley in which the Blues beat Arsenal 1-0.
The police statement adds: “Officers are still keen for witnesses to come forward to the incident where the keys to a white Ford Fiesta were taken and the car were stolen as well as a TV and jewellery.
“Anyone who witnessed the incident or saw any suspicious behaviour or has knowledge of the incident should contact Ipswich CID, quoting crime reference 37/3589/19.
“Alternatively, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their anonymous online form at crimestoppers-uk.org."

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
