Oldest Town Player Trenter Dies
Monday, 29th Jul 2019 16:23
Former Town winger Ron Trenter, who was the oldest living Blues player, died on July 25th aged 90.
Ipswich-born Trenter joined the club from Whitton in in 1946 and made the first of the three first-team appearances against Crystal Palace in May of the same year.
Nicknamed ‘Brassy’, Trenter played his final game for the first team in August 1951 before departing for Clacton Town.
Wing-half Len Fletcher, also 90, who still lives locally, is now the club’s oldest living player.

Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
