Fortuna Blues Scarf Raising Funds for Beattie Memorabilia Cabinets
Thursday, 14th Nov 2019 10:26
The Fortuna Blues have produced a special commemorative scarf to raise fund for cabinets to house Town legend Kevin Beattie’s memorabilia in Beattie’s, the Sir Alf Ramsey Stand hospitality lounge recently renamed in the defender's honour.
The Fortuna Blues, fans of Bundesliga side Fortuna Düsseldorf, have become a familiar sight at Portman Road in recent years and many of them got to know Beattie during their trips, meeting up with him and chatting with him in the FanZone prior to matches.
This year they are making their annual pilgrimage to Portman Road for the Accrington game on Saturday 11th January when they will be wearing the newly-commissioned scarves as a memento.
An allocation of 100 scarves is available to Town fans via the SLO/Heritage Society hub in the FanZone ahead of the Blackpool home game and post-match in Beattie’s a week on Saturday at a cost of £10 each.
They scarves are selling quickly, so it may be necessary to order ahead of the game, which can be done by emailing email@example.com with your name and the number of scarves required. Payment in cash will be taken at the game.
If you want a scarf but won’t be at the Blackpool game, email and a way of getting one to you will be found.

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.
