Description

Ipswich Town On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the Tractor Boys' illustrious past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable blue-and-white diary - with an entry for every day of the year. From Town's Victorian formation through to the Premier League era, the Portman Road faithful have witnessed promotions and relegations, League and Cup triumphs, hard-fought derbies and unforgettable European nights - all featured here. All-time greats including John Wark and Ray Crawford, Billy Baxter, Arnold Muhren and Mick Mills all loom larger than life. Revisit 18 January 1969: Bobby Robson's first game in charge, a 2-2 draw away at Everton. 30 October 1926: Barclays Bank beat Town 3-1 at Portman Road, the game being held up to clear an invasion of rats. Or 20 May 1981: The night that Town won the Uefa Cup in Amsterdam!
