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."

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
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.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
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.

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.
