Friday, 8th Mar 2019 11:33
Blues legend Terry Butcher has been named the new president of the official ITFC Supporters Club.
A statement from the Supporters Club reads: “The executive committee of the official ITFC Supporters Club invited Terry Butcher to become the president, which he has gladly accepted.
“It is a position in years gone by previously held by John Wark. Terry will be attending his first meeting next month and helping with the 40th Player of the Year awards night."
Butcher is a regular at Portman Road these days and joined the Life's a Pitch team earlier in the season, while he has been a frequent visitor to Playford Road since Paul Lambert took over as boss.
Meanwhile, the Supporters Club’s Quiz Night at Bury Town on January 22nd raised £556.10 pounds for the ITFC Academy with a cheque subsequently having been handed to manager Paul Lambert and general manager of football operations Lee O’Neill.
Former Blues Micky Stockwell, Alan Lee and current player Jack Lankester took part, while Bury Town Fc also entered a team.
Stockwell also talked about his playing career during the event which was packed out. It is now intended to make the quiz night an annual event at Bury.

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.
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.
