Me and My Club
with Katy Sealy
Heptathlete and Town fan Katy Sealy discusses her favourite Town player, captain and more.
How did you become a Town fan?
Moved to Ipswich in 1998, family very big on football, Dad is a Leicester fan, mum and I started to go and watch Ipswich.
First Town game. Year/team/score/ground?
I know it wasn't my very first game watching Town, but the first game I remember is the 5-3 play off win against Bolton.
Favourite Town player of all time and why?
Marcus Stewart for those 19 premier league goals to get us to the UEFA Cup.
Worst moment as a Town Fan?
In 2005, losing to West Ham in the play-offs for the second year in a row.
Favourite Town goal ever and why?
Alun Armstrong's penalty in the San Siro, I was 11, I remember standing in the stairwell waiting for him to take it and mum telling me To be careful, we went crazy.
Best Ipswich Town captain of all time and why?
You have to give Matt Holland a special mention when it comes to captains but I think Luke Chambers has really built up a fantastic Team spirit and well that fist pump...
Favourite piece of Town memorabilia is?
My 2000 blues at Wembley flag.
Greatest Town game you have watched & why?
Difficult to pick one, the trips to Wembley and San Siro have to be my top two.
Who is your favourite Town manager and why?
If I had been alive when Sir Bobby was our manager I would undoubtedly say him, however this season I was lucky enough to meet Mick McCarthy and sit in at a few of his press conferences, we have to be so proud of what he and our team have achieved in the last year.
Most memorable Town moment as a fan of Ipswich and why?
Has to be beating Barnsley at Wembley, the memories from that day will stay with me forever.
