Stacey and Crook on Life's a Pitch
Friday, 4th Oct 2019 17:37
Former Town full-back Steve Stacey and almost-Blue Ian Crook feature on BBC Radio Suffolk’s Life’s a Pitch at lunchtime on Saturdya between 12 noon and 2pm. Host Mark Murphy will also be joined by Tractorboy and TWTD's Phil Ham, who will be at Highbury ahead of the game against Fleetwood Town.
Stacey, who was the first black player to feature for the Blues when he made his debut in 1969, has written a book, The Colour of Football, on his life and career in football, which also took in spells with hometown club Bristol City, Wrexham and Exeter City. You can buy a copy of The Colour of Football here.
Crook joined Town from Norwich City in the summer of 1996 before performing a shock U-turn and returning to Carrow Road before he had played a game. The former midfielder will give his side of the story.
Can Town continue their unbeaten start to the season? Can they win their fifth away game of the campaign? Send your thoughts on those questions or anything else to the Life’s a Pitch team via email, Mark’s Twitter or during the show by phone on 0800 141 2121 or text to 81333 starting your message with SFK.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also now on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
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).
