Burley’s Barmy Army Wembley 2000
Thursday, 21st May 2020 17:57
BBC Radio Suffolk is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Town’s glorious 4-2 Wembley play-off victory over Barnsley with a special show, Burley’s Barmy Army Wembley 2000, featuring many of the stars of that great day, as well as fans’ memories, on Monday (2pm to 6pm).
Manager George Burley, chairman David Sheepshanks, skipper Matt Holland, Richard Wright, Richard Naylor, Marcus Stewart, David Johnson, Jim Magilton, Jamie Clapham, John McGreal, Martijn Reuser, Gary Croft, Fabian Wilnis, James Scowcroft and Kieron Dyer will be among the guests on the show presented by Mark Murphy and TWTD’s Phil Ham.
In addition, there will be commentary highlights from the game, which took place on the equivalent Bank Holiday Monday in 2000, featuring Terry Baxter and Blues legend Kevin Beattie, as well as archive commentary as Burley built his team over the preceding seasons suffering success and heartache along the way.
The show will also focus on fans’ memories, stories and memorabilia. Have you got a tale to tell about how you came by a ticket? Did you watch the game in some far-flung part of the world or Norfolk? Have you got a photo of a banner you took to the game or a late-night shot of you hugging a player deep into the celebrations late into the night? If you have, email them to Mark via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show can be heard on 95.5FM, 95.9FM, 103.9FM and 104.6FM, and also on DAB, or online via a widget on this page by clicking here.

A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
