Community Trust Day on Saturday
Monday, 10th Feb 2020 16:55
Town have designated Saturday’s game against Burton Albion Community Trust Day with fans asked to Bring a Pound to the Ground to donate to the club’s charitable arm, which was relaunched in August.
Volunteers will be outside Portman Road and in the FanZone collecting money for the Community Trust which has made significant progress since its return, six years after the club severed ties with its Charitable Trust.
“First and foremost, it creates a fan base. We’re creating positive role models through our coaches and children are becoming more and more interested with the club.”
Like the Charitable Trust before it, the Community Trust is largely responsible for much of its own funding and Curtis says the cash raised on Saturday will make a significant impact.
Town have a number of events planned for Saturday including three pre-match coaching sessions run by Trust coaches in the FanZonefrom 12.30pm - 1pm, 1pm - 1.30pm and 1.30pm - 2pm. The sessions are free for children, just turn up on the day and speak to the coaches.

As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.

It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.

For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
