Air Ambulance Name on Kids' Kits
Thursday, 23rd May 2019 10:02
Town’s junior kits during 2019/20 will bear the name of charity partner East Anglian Air Ambulance across the front, the club has confirmed.
Main sponsors Magical Vegas, in the second full year of their three-and-a-half-year deal, have agreed to cover the costs to facilitate the charity’s name appearing on the kits with EFL rules preventing gambling companies from featuring on junior shirts. Last season the name of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) appeared on youngsters' replica shirts.
Yesterday, Town announced that the East Anglian Air Ambulance’s name would appear on the back of first-team shirts during the season ahead.
“It’s great exposure for the East Anglian Air Ambulance to have our name on the back of the Ipswich Town first-team shirts for next season and also on the front of the junior shirts and we’d like to thank Magical Vegas for their kind gesture,” said EAAA chief executive Patrick Peal.
Konstantinos Veletas, spokesperson for the Stride Gaming group, added: “We were more than happy to cover the costs to see the name of such a fantastic charity in the East Anglian Air Ambulance recognised on the front of Ipswich Town’s junior shirts.”

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.
