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 Saturday 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.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
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.
