Norwegian Blues Retain Supporters Cup
Saturday, 1st Jun 2019 18:20
The Ipswich Town Supporters Club of Norway won the annual Supporters Cup for the second successive year in Oslo earlier this afternoon, thrashing Manchester City 6-0 in the final.
The tournament, which has been run by the Supporterunionen for Britisk Fotball for more than 20 years, is a six-a-side competition involving more than 1,000 Norwegian supporters of British clubs.
In the group stage the Blues beat Kidderminster 7-0, West Brom 6-0 and then Liverpool 1-0 to top Pool F.
A 2-0 victory over Arsenal followed in the round of 16 before Manchester United were vanquished 6-2 in the quarter-finals.
A 3-1 victory over Wolves in the semi-finals took the all-conquering Blues the final where they hammered Manchester City to carry off the trophy, which they won for the first time last year, at a canter.

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.
