Supporters Asked to Hold Minute's Applause For Lifelong Fan Liz
Thursday, 22nd Feb 2024 15:42

Supporters are being asked to hold a minute’s applause as the clock ticks past the 58-minute mark of Saturday’s home game against Birmingham City in tribute to fan Liz Damant, who died last week aged 58.

Lifelong Blues supporter Liz, who worked for the NHS in the cancer unit at Ipswich Hospital, suffered a bleed on the brain.

Her friends Duncan and Kara Foster said: “Liz was a happy, positive soul, who always saw the good in everyone and was one of the most thoughtful people we knew.

“She loved Ipswich Town and Duncan remembers every conversation starting with her talking about what was happening at ITFC. Liz will be missed dearly but will remain in our memories forever.”

Terribly sad. I didn’t know Liz, but anyone who works in such a profession has my utmost respect and appreciation. Of course, a fellow blue too.

Taken too soon, condolences to her family & friends and may she rest peacefully. I’ll certainly be clapping on ‘58 on Saturday.

I rode past a funeral procession last week where the hearse and coffin were draped from top to bottom in blue and white heading in the direction of Seven Hills - and it makes me wonder if I had seen Liz pass by.

What an incredible sight to see, so if that was you Liz - you went to rest in total style.

Blue and White Army.

May this beautiful soul rest in peace. As a group of fellow fans the least we can do

Flight of Shefki.. Doubt it was, as the lady only died last week.
Very sad, taken way too soon. Be an honour to join in the applause. RIP.

Guys, the Friday procession was for Irene Davey, former Patron of the Supporters Club.
Losing too many and at 58 Liz is gone far too young. RIP
